These waffles were so good. My husband wants them every weekend now.
The multi-colored mochi is actually what we normally eat to celebrate girls and boys day here in Hawaii. It's softer and sweeter. You just eat it like that. We also have round ones stuffed with sweet azuki beans. In the past few years they started to carry it in stores almost all year round.
My favorite is the plain because you can put anything on it or put it in soups.
totallyflirting- The first time I ever tried mocho was in Waikiki this February. It was those little ice cream treats which I fell in love with but totally not good for you! ( I would love to try the bean stuffed ones!) I thought that was what mochi was because that is what everyone called the ice cream things so when I read Alicia's recipe for pan fried mochi I was confused about pan frying ice cream (yes, my natural hair color is blonde and I am sometimes not proud of it!). I am curious about your mochi soup recipes. Could you share one with us?
I just made this again, but for our son. It was his first one ever. This time I used the mochi our family makes at the beginning of the year. He thought it was cool that it actually turn into a waffle. He wanted maple syrup. He agreed to the steamed greens. Yay.
Toasted the walnuts drizzed a little bit of Maple Syrup squeezed a little bit of lemon juice topped it with blueberries and walnuts
totallyflirting - I'm from Hawaii but now live on the mainland. I miss fresh made mochi! The mochi that is called for for the mochi recipes in TKD I've only used for zenzai which is an adzuki bean soup which is sweet. It's so yummy but I'm sure the sugar is not so good for you. I miss all the mochi options Hawaii and Japan have to offer! I plan to try the waffles tomorrow,
I loved the mochi waffles mm good! Blows me away that they are made from RICE!!! Love it. I also made banana walnut waffles...not super hero BUT so good. I used spelt flour (spelt flour has more protein then wheat flour) my 'meat eater' hubby LOVED them. Recipe on my blog. http://caroline-is-vegan.blogspot.com/
