Last Hollywood Bowl Donabe Rice Balls ("Onigiri") of This Year

Last Sunday was my already 7th and last Hollywood Bowl concert of this year. I will miss picnicking here until next year!

This year's last Hollywood Bowl Onigiri (rice ball) was Kyoto Green Tea & Plum Kombucha Onigiri, made with my double-lid donabe rice cooker, Kamado-san! Green Tea is special "Tencha" (base flakey tea leaves before ground for matcha - powdered green tea). I cooked 2 rice-cups 50/50 brown and white rice, mixed in 5 teaspoons tencha leaves, 3 teaspoons "ume" (plum) kombucha, and 2 tablespoons toasted white sesame seeds.

Onigiri is ready!

We enjoyed onigiri and okazu (side dishes) at the concert. Green Tea & Plum Kombucha Onigiri was so elegant and special. Really fun concert. The National was rocking!

Happy donabe life.
