A typical Japanese rice cake, mochi is made from pounded steamed rice, which becomes sticky and stretchy. It’s a quintessential food in Japan that can be used in savory dishes or traditional sweets. Chewy and gooey in texture, mochi can be addictive and absolutely delicious. Traditional Japanese sweets are known as wagashi, and are typically made from plant-based ingredients, making them vegan-friendly and usually gluten-free. Mochi can be used to make a number of wagashi that are popular throughout Japan, although different prefectures tend to have their own regional variations on sweets too.
