Bamboo Rice

Bamboo Rice is a short grain white rice which has been 
soaked in bamboo juice.
It has a mild bamboo flavor. I use it because it is visually appealing.

The first time I used bamboo rice I rinsed it
which washed a lot of the bamboo juice away...

 Bamboo rice makes great sushi rice

Cut the tofu into small slabs, fry, soak in a
sugar and rice vinegar mixture overnight, then cut in half

Add some of the rice vinegar marinade drained
from the tofu to the bamboo rice.
Cut out a pocket in the tofu.
Stuff the pocket with seasoned bamboo rice

This visual appeal of this dish will sell itself.
