Story Behind this Recipe
I figured I could make okara like this if I could do it with tofu. It was a huge success when I tried it out. I tried various combinations and ingredients, and came up with this recipe. It is full of dietary fiber, and great if you're on a diet.
Rolling this into small balls helps the kinako stick better, and it is delicious. There is no sweetness depending on the rice cake, so you can add lots of sugar.
