Matcha is a type of powdered green tea known for its health benefits and for its ease of use in cooking. It has a fresh, green flavor that can be incorporated into recipes much like a fresh herb would be, and it works well in many sweet foods and savory foods alike.
From the simple and healthy (whisked matcha, matcha smoothies) to the involved and indulgent (matcha-coconut macaroons, matcha "katsuera" sponge cake) and from the unusual (salad with matcha dressing, which tastes much better than it sounds) to the versatile (matcha butter and matcha salt, both of which can be used to flavor a plethora of foods), this matcha recipe collection tells you all you need to know about how to cook with matcha. Check it out, try a few ways of cooking with matcha, and share your matcha cooking experiences with other readers in the comments below!
