Mochi

June 24th, 2010 by Jean Duane


I once knew a cat name Mochi, but it wasn?t until recently that I ate Mochi (not the cat) and liked it! If you are looking for a fast, easy, GFCF snack food — try Mochi. Mochi is gluten and dairy-free, rice-based puff pastry commonly eaten in Japan. It is made from sweet rice that is beaten into a pulp, molded and cut. It can be baked, grilled, boiled, steamed or fried into tasty treats. When baked, it is crisp and brown on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Purchase Mochi at the health food store. The easiest way to make it is to cut it into 1? to 2? squares. Set squares on an oiled baking sheet and bake them for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. They puff up and can be filled with jelly or dipped into a sauce. Grainaissance makes several flavors including: Cashew-Date, Chocolate Brownie, Pizza, Raison-Cinnamon, Sesame-Garlic and Super Seed all gluten and dairy free!

Here?s a simple sauce to try with the Sesame-Garlic Mochi. Combine 2 TBS raw sesame tahini; 1 tsp wheat-free tamari, 2 TBS water in a bowl. Whisk to incorporate ingredients. Microwave for 30 seconds and whisk again until it turns into a sauce consistency. Bake the Mochi and dip warm Mochi into the warm sauce. Enjoy!
