Red Bean Mochi


My kids love red bean filling because they have been eating it in rice balls, mochi and moon cakes since they were little.  I think it may be an acquired taste.  This is a fairly simple recipe for making mochi with red bean filling.  You can also just make the dough part and eat the mochi plain.

I like to use Eden brand beans because they are readily available at my local grocery.  For some reason they call these "Aduki Beans" which looks like a typo to me.  I have also seen these beans called azuki beans.  Whatever.  I'm pretty sure we are all talking about the same beans!
