Tofu Mochi with Rice Bran

Tofu Mochi with Rice Bran

This is a healthy tofu mochi with rice bran, which is rich in vitamins B1 & B2. It's great as a snack for the kids.

Ingredients: 2 servings

◎Tofu (silken or processed tofu)
100 g
◎Rice bran
2 tablespoons
◎Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
◎Light brown sugar or brown cane sugar
1 teaspoon
Kinako
as needed
Light brown sugar or brown cane sugar (or any other sugar)
as needed

Steps

1. Put the ◎ ingredients into a heatproof dish. Mix well until there are no tofu lumps. Lightly wrap with cling film and microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds at 500-600 W.
2. Knead the mixture well using a spatula. Microwave for another 30-40 seconds.
3. Mix it well again, and then divide into bite-sized pieces. Coat the mochi balls in a mixture of kinako and brown sugar, and it's done.
4. I coated these ones with green barley and sugar. It's even healthier with matcha, or something with vitamin C.
