Green Tea Over Deep Fried Mochi



Heat 2 inches of Eden Safflower in a medium, heavy saucepan. When the oil is hot, place the mochi pieces in the oil. Deep-fry until golden and the mochi puffs up, about 7 minutes. Remove mochi, quickly drain on paper towels and place the mochi into a medium soup bowl.

Place the packet of green tea into the hot water and steep for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the tea bags, discard bag, and pour tea over the deep-fried mochi.

Garnish with grated daikon, nori krinkles, umeboshi plum, green onions, and shoyu to taste. Eat while hot.

NOTE: A tablespoon of Eden Bonito Flakes also makes a delicious, savory garnish.
