As with any risotto, this dish should be served hot. Japanese rice absorbs sake and chicken stock, achieving the creamy, smooth texture of perfectrisotto. Garnish with enoki mushrooms, chopped scallions, and Kaiware sprouts. If you use the miso broth, a savory (not sweet) version is recommended for this recipe.
