Easy Matcha Recipes: Add Matcha to Your Food!

Matcha green tea is unlike any other tea you’ll drink (or eat). Since it’s green tea in powdered form, it’s whisked or blended rather than brewed. It whisks up with abundant foam, and the flavor is at once bold and balanced, bittersweet and pleasing. The result is a rich, vegetal green tea with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. 

Matcha green tea powder is a very old style of preparing tea that was elevated to an art form through the Japanese tea ceremony – check out our Bamboo Matcha Whisk and Matcha Set to whisk up a bowl with ease.

Today, matcha is incredibly popular for its health benefits and as a gourmet addition to both sweet and savory cuisine. Below we share four unique ways you can use this powdered tea to add a gourmet touch to both sweet and savory dishes!

 

Matcha Ginger Fruit Salad

4 cups strawberries, cut into quarters
2 nectarines, chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 mangos, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
¼ cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
½ teaspoon minced ginger
½ teaspoon Organic Everyday Matcha Green Tea Powder
Pinch of salt

Cut up the strawberries, nectarines, and mangoes and place in a large serving bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, white balsamic vinegar, ginger, matcha and salt. Whisk well. Combine the dressing with the fruit. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Pair this salad with a fruity green tea like Sweet Mirabelle Green Tea or Apple Ginger Green Tea.

 
Easy matcha recipes - Matcha Pesto Pasta Recipe

Matcha Pesto Pasta

⅓ cup pine nuts
1 cup basil leaves
½ cup spinach leaves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Organic Everyday Matcha Green Tea Powder
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon olive oil
Dried pasta 

Boil pasta in a large pot, then drain. Blend all other ingredients together in a food processor. Toss everything together, and enjoy! 

Serve this pasta with our new Organic Matcha Genmaicha green tea, an earthy infusion that goes well with savory food.

 

Matcha White Chocolate Cookies

¾ cup sugar
2 tablespoons plus ½ teaspoon White Chocolate Matcha
2 cups flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature and cut into pieces
½ cup (packed) light brown sugar
1½ tablespoons honey
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
3 ounces white chocolate, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together ½ cup sugar and ½ teaspoon matcha in a small bowl; set aside. Mix flour, baking soda, salt and remaining 2 tablespoons matcha. 

Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter, brown sugar, honey, and remaining ¼ cup sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add egg, egg yolk and lemon zest and mix again, about 4 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour mixture; mix well. Add in white chocolate.

Wrap dough in plastic and chill for at least three hours. If chilling more than a few hours, let the dough soften at room temperature before scooping out to bake.

Bake cookies 8-10 minutes. Take out and toss cookies in extra matcha sugar. Set on cooling racks.

Complement this sweet treat with a bowl of freshly whisked Organic Ceremonial Matcha!

 

Matcha Infused Sea Salt

1 tablespoon sea salt
½ teaspoon Organic Everyday Matcha Green Tea Powder

Mix and store in a pretty bowl or bottle. Protect from moisture, and it will keep for up to six months.

Matcha-infused sea salt can be used to replace regular salt in many recipes like veggie dishes, baked or steamed fish, popcorn or egg dishes. Matcha salt also tastes great as a rub for meats.
