I love making unique foods! There is just something so exhilarating about NOT eating just the same,
run-of -the-mill food. Well, one day when my son was over, we wanted to make something yummy for lunch. We found a package of Mochi in the frig. and thought "perfect"!!
Mochi is a "Gluten Free", compressed, rice-based food. It comes in a variety flavors such as Plain, Sesame, and Cinnamon. You can find it at any health food store, in the refrigerated section.
For this recipe, we used the plain kind. Cut the Mochi into 1-2" squares, place on a greased baking pan, leaving a good amount between each piece since the BLOW UP when baked. Bake according to the package directions.
We found some delicious items: black beans, fresh garden tomatoes, lettuce, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and some hot sauce to put into our finished Mochi. We stuffed each Mochi piece with the different ingredients, this recipe being a having a Mexican flare.
This is the HOT sauce we like to use.
Be careful, it's intense!!
|Here my son Daniel is demonstrating how to stuff|
a Mochi like a pro.
He follows the Vegan diet, which he made these
by just leaving off the sour cream and cheese,
and adding some Hummus.
