The nuts and the soy sauce give this a toasty aroma. You'll be addicted to the sweet and salty fusion of cheese and maple syrup! This dish be made with just one skillet.

Ingredients: 1 mochi

Mochi rice cakes
1
Salted butter
2 g (about the size of a soybean)
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Walnuts and almonds (salted)
25 g combined
Maple syrup
1 tablespoon
Samsoe cheese (or pizza cheese, etc)
10 g
Cinnamon
to taste

Steps

1. If you have time, dry roast and finely chop up the walnuts and almonds. Also finely chop up the cheese and set aside.
2. Add the butter and mochi to a frying pan, and cook both sides well on medium heat. Make sure the center is cooked through.
3. Once the mochi has cooked through, reduce the heat, pour the soy sauce over it evenly to make sure it's coated well.
4. Next add the maple syrup and the ingredients from Step 1 and mix together. Once the cheese has melted, plate and top with cinnamon if you'd like.
