KINAKO MOCHI


This is Kinako Mochi (rice cake with soybean flour).
There are a lot of mountains in Nippon so travelers had to travel across the passes.
They used to stop to the teahouse of the passes and eat sweet food like this.

Kinako, also known as soybean flour, is a product commonly used in Japanese cuisine. In order to create the soybean flour, soybeans are toasted and ground into powder. Its flavor is commonly compared to that of peanut butter.

Kinako, being composed of soybeans, is a healthy topping and flavoring which contains B vitamins and protein. It can also be used as a drink. One example of its use in popular foods is warabi mochi, which is a famous kinako-covered sweet.

Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice pounded into paste and molded into shape. In Japan it is traditionally made in a ceremony called mochitsuki. While also eaten year-round, mochi is a traditional food for the Japanese New Year and is commonly sold and eaten during that time. Mochi is also a prominent snack in HawaiiTaiwan and Thailand.
