Sweet beans may sound odd, but it is a very common thing in Japan and other cultures..think along the lines of baked beans and how sweet they can be...I have extra adukis so I will try this recipe.
Eden Sweet Aduki Beans & Mochi
Prep Time 0:05
Cook Time 0:25
15 ounces Eden Organic Aduki Beans, drained, reserve small amount of the liquid
1 Tablespoon organic maple syrup
1/4 cup organic raisins (or other dried fuit)
1 teaspoon Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce, or to taste (shoyu has wheat ingredients you can substitute Bragg's Liquid Aminos if Wheat Free or Gluten Free)
3 pieces Eden Sweet Brown Rice Mochi, cut into quarters
or Eden Sprouted Brown Rice Mochi
Place the aduki beans, syrup, raisins and shoyu in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes. If liquid needs to be added, add a small amount of the reserve bean cooking liquid. When the beans are about half cooked, place the mochi on a baking sheet and bake at 350° for about 5 minutes or until it puffs up. Place 4 pieces of mochi in individual bowls and spoon the sweet aduki beans over.
