- 4 tbsp soy sauce OR mayo
- 2 tbsp chopped green onion
- Dried salted seaweed - available at most grocery stores in the snack section

- Wash rice in cold water, rinsing then dumping water three to four times. Then, leave rice to soak for 15-30 minutes, just covered by fresh water.
- Dump out water and place rice in a heavy saucepan, then add the 5 3/4 cups new water. Cover and bring to a vigorous boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until all water is absorbed, approx., 12-13 minutes.
- Turn off heat and let sit for 10-15 minutes in the pan to cool.
