Miso Soup with Mochi

Miso Soup with Mochi

Miso Soup with Mochi is a typical miso soup with tofu and green onions topped with a toasted mochi rice cake. It's similar to Ozoni (a special New Year's Eve soup), but much more casual. Dried mochi left over from the pantry is cooked in a toaster and added to the soup. You can make any miso soup recipe and add toasted mochi too.

During the winter we tend to get bags of dried mochi to eat around New Year's Day. During the winter, dried mochi are used for Ozoni soup (for New Year's Eve), cooked with a variety of toppings (see Mochi Variations recipe), or eaten as sweet desserts such as Zenzai. Then, when spring arrives, we tend to have a few forgotten pieces of dried mochi in the pantry. This is a great way to use up leftover mochi in your pantry any time of the year!
