Mochi Avocado Southwestern Waffles

Have you ever had a Japanese mochi waffle? They look like a “regular” waffle but that’s where the similarity ends. They have a crunchy, golden brown exterior and a soft, chewy, slightly sticky interior. Mochi waffles are a favorite in Japan.

Typically, they are made with rice flour, eggs, sugar, and milk – typical waffle ingredients with the exception of using glutenous (or sweet) rice flour instead of wheat flour.

Thanks to Eden Foods, you can make a one-ingredient mochi waffle at home. You heard me right, ONE INGREDIENT!

Eden’s Sweet Brown Rice Organic Mochi are little squares of shelf-stable sweet brown rice mochi with nothing else added. They can be steamed, fried, baked, and can be used to make waffles!

To make a waffle just cut or grate the squares of mochi and cook in a waffle maker. Easy enough.

I decided to put a Southwestern twist on this Japanese classic by adding avocado and a quick black bean salsa. Sort of waffle meets avocado toast meets tostada.
