Introducing Brown Rice Kirimochi!

Oct 2, 2022 | Green Cuisine Blog | 0 comments

No seasonal specialties in Japan are complete without some form of mochi in their delicacy. But we will not discuss these soft, cute little morsels, instead of one type of the most unconventional creation – Brown Rice Kiri Mochi. This defies all laws of your mochi dreams, as it is made of brown rice instead of japonica glutinous rice; it is not sweetened with sugar and is brightened with colours. Our Green cuisine Brown rice Kiri mochi is made from organically grown, freshly pounded cooked brown rice and hardened into squares. We have three flavours: Plain, Cinnamon raisin and Sesame.

This twist in tradition with macrobiotic infusion, our green cuisine brown rice kirimochi, is unique and special. Cooking with our Kirimochi is easy. Let us see some simple ways to create dishes with our kirimochi.

Puffed and dipped:

  • Cut the mochi into small cubes.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment and arrange the cubes spaciously.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 375 F for about 10 minutes, watching it from burning.
  • Once puffed, remove promptly and let it cool.
  • A side dip of soy sauce makes this a quick evening snack.

Croutons:

  • Cube the mochi slab into small pieces.
  • Coat generously with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and Italian herbs over the cubes.
  • Mix well and let it sit for 10mins.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Arrange all the cubes spaced apart on the parchment line baking sheet.
  • Drizzle over the excess oil mix.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 mins (time depends on the size of the mochi pieces).
  • Watch out for the mochi to puff up smooth and beautiful and avoid browning.
  • Remove carefully and let cool completely before serving with your favourite soup.

Waffle:

  • Shred or cut a slab of mochi thinly into a bowl.
  • Warm up a waffle iron and coat it with oil.
  • Arrange the shreds or slices of mochi onto the warm iron.
  • Close and cook for about 5 to 10 mins.
  • Once it is puffed and cooked, remove it from the iron.
  • Top it with your favourite dressing and toppings.
  • For sweet waffles, apply some nut butter, arrange cut fruit slices on top and drizzle maple syrup on the top.
  • For savoury waffles, spread cashew cheese, add salsa and diced avocado, and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
  • Serve warm.
