Sushi Su

Su is the flavored rice used in sushi.

In a Pyrex measuring cup combine:

If possible use fresh herbs, but dried also works. Let the herbs soak for a while, at least as long as it takes to rinse and cook:

Fluff the rice and dump it into a ceramic bowl. Fold the liquid mixture into the rice with a wooden spatula or plastic rice spatula. The goal is to get each grain of rice coated with the mixture. Then cover the bowl with a moist towel and let the su cool.
