Brown Rice & Black Soybean Mochi is potent strengthening and rejuvenating food. It is skillfully multi-step made of steamed and pounded JAS certified organic sweet brown rice with organic Japanese black soybeans and a wee bit of sea salt. Vacuum packed, no refrigeration is needed for storage. Mochi softens and puffs into moist cakes with crisp chewy crust from slow pan sizzling, or when baked about 8 minutes. Great as is or with a little shoyu, in miso soup, and it makes delightful waffles. Mochi is always a pleasure no matter how it is used. Add cooked mochi to soup or stews after they're cooked for dumplings. Gluten Free.
