Mochi

with 5 comments

I had mochi for the first time today. I got this sampler, and today cooked one 110-calorie square as the starch for lunch (which otherwise was a green salad with tuna). The Wife is an old mochi hand, and when I started describing what I was going to order, she said, “Sounds like mochi” (and I hadn’t given the name since I assumed it would mean nothing to her as it did to me—wrongo). So today I had one of the sprouted brown rice mochi, heating in a 450ºF oven for 8 minutes—not quite enough. Tomorrow I’ll try heating one in the skillet, with a little butter, which is how The Wife ate it.

I always love to try a new food.

  1. The mochi I know all involve ice cream — clearly different from the ones you tried. The ice cream variety available from TJ’s. I’ll send you a picture.

  2. Sticky little things sauted in butter and served wif sweet bean powder. Yum. G, what is the ice-cream like? Is it chewy?

  3. The ice cream kind of mochi is regular mochi balls that are hollow and filled with ice cream: usually vanilla, green tea, and red bean paste flavors. Yum!

  5. My two favorites are the mango and strawberry — both available at Trader Joe’s (along with Green Tea and Chocolate).
