Mochi Rice Cakes with Grated Daikon Radish and Natto

Mochi Rice Cakes with Grated Daikon Radish and Natto

A combination of mochi, grated daikon radish and natto. I always end up eating too much of this.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Mochi
6 pieces
Daikon radish
6 cm (about 250 g)
Natto
3 packs
Green shiso leaves or nori seaweed
as needed
Soy sauce
a small amount

Steps

1. Bring a pot of water to the boil, put in the mochi, and follow the package instructions to soak the mochi until soft, about 2 to 3 minutes.
2. Drain the daikon radish. Mix the natto well. Finely shred the shiso leaves.
3. Transfer the mochi to a plate and place the natto, grated daikon radish and shiso leaves on top. If sauce came with the natto, add that too. Drizzle on a little soy sauce and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

We just finished pounding mochi, and tried eating it like this for lunch and it was delicious.
