Sweet Brown Rice Mochi is potent strengthening and rejuvenating food. It is skillfully multi-step made of steamed, pounded, JAS certified organic 100% whole grain brown rice. It is vacuum packed so refrigeration is not needed. Mochi softens and puffs into moist chewy cakes with a crisp 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. Add cooked mochi to soup or stews after they're cooked for dumplings. Gluten Free.
