Hello. This is Ren MURO Kagurazaka store.

In the previous blog, I talked about "arrangement recipes for amazake", but following that, I would like to tell you about amazake recommended for cooking in MURO and recipes for amazake sauce.

[Amazake recommended for cooking]

Creamy amazake

 Especially recommended among concentrated types of pure rice amazake. The easy-to-use tube cap has a firm sweetness and richness, and it's a paste type, so you can use it without worrying about graininess. 

Creamy Amazake with Sesame Sauce

2 tablespoons creamy amazake, 2 tablespoons white sesame paste, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, ground sesame if desired

⇒Exquisite combination of sesame paste and amazake! Come and enjoy shabu-shabu.


Brown rice sweet koji special or thick brown rice 

It is especially recommended in brown rice amazake. It's easy to use brown rice sweet koji tokuno, which you can adjust the thickness to your liking, but you can also use soft brown rice instead. The richness of brown rice, which is not found in pure rice amazake, goes well with miso.

Brown rice amazake with miso sauce

1/2 tbsp brown rice sweet koji, 2/3 tbsp miso, 1/2 tsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp soy milk, 1/2 tsp sesame oil

⇒ The richness of brown rice and miso goes well together. White miso and rice miso are recommended. The soy milk is used to spread the miso, so if you want a light texture, you can use water instead. Enjoy with stir-fried or steamed vegetables and meat.

Rice Koji Seasoning Shirakami Sasara

Among amazake containing lactic acid bacteria, amazake made for cooking. The sourness of lactic acid bacteria raises the taste of cooking and softens fish and meat.

Sasara Shirakami's refreshing sauce

Rice koji seasoning 2 tbsp Shirakami sasara, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp kabosu (or lemon juice)

⇒ Sasara's soft acidity and soy sauce match well, giving it a gentle ponzu-like taste. It can be used as a dipping sauce over boiled vegetables, or as a shabu-shabu dish.

It's easy to make just by mixing everything, so please make sure to make it.

This time, we introduced amazake, which is recommended for cooking, and recipes for amazake sauce that uses them.

The possibilities are endless depending on the seasonings and ingredients you combine, so please try to incorporate it into your amazake life.

Until the end Thank you for reading.
