Green Onions and Mochi

Green Onions and Mochi

This is an easy dish that everybody loves! I like mochi pizza, too, but this one has a lighter flavour so you can eat lots of it up.

Ingredients: 1 frying pan's worth

Mochi rice cake
250-300 g
Japanese leek
1 stalk, give or take
Bonito flakes
1 packet
Green onions
as needed
10 g
1 tablespoon


1. Cut the Japanese leek into 1 cm thick round slices (use the green part as well). Arrange in a non-stick frying pan.
2. Spread 1 cm mochi cubes on top and place small pieces of butter here and there.
3. Sprinkle with the sake, cover with a lid, and simmer for 10-15 minutes over low heat. Once the mochi is melted and has spread out, transfer it to a plate.
4. Sprinkle with bonito flakes, drizzle with soy sauce and umami seasoning, then garnish with green onions.
