I find that in Spring when the weather is bouncing back and forth from cold to warmer and back to cold, mochi helps me feel satiated and ready for anything.
Have fun with your food and enjoy!
Mochi Melt with Lamb
Make as much or as little as you like.
Plain mochi, cut into small squares about ½”
Lamb, cut into chunks with all bones removed
Chinese cabbage, chopped
Shoyu (good quality soy sauce)
Breakfast Mochi Melt
Sweet, creamy and full of energy, this dish is very satisfying.
Use veggies that you enjoy and mix it up each time. Add beans and herbs for an even heartier meal.
Sweet potato or winter squash (or both) chopped
Mochi cut into small pieces
Make as much as you need for each person. Heat the olive oil in a pan or skillet.
Sauté the veggies for several minutes. The onions will become translucent. Add a pinch of sea salt. Add about 1/4" to 1/2" of good quality water and add the mochi. Put a lid on the pan and turn the heat to low. Cook for 10 or 15 more minutes to soften the veggies and melt the mochi. Take the lid off and stir. If there is too much extra liquid simply simmer without a lid until you have the desired consistency.
