Easy Sweet Red Bean Soup with Mochi ぜんざい

I had a kinder mate gathering and since I cannot stand long, I decided to just make Sweet Red Bean Soup with Mochi ぜんざい as I have some ready made red bean done.

It was really easy to put together and as for the mochi, I used store bought ones.  Just grill them in the toaster and voila.

Glad that the group enjoyed this and find the texture good.

What you need:

250g Ready made sweetened red bean
100g Cooked rice
1 litre water
Store bought mochi


Combine ready made sweetened red bean, cooked rice and water in a blender. 

Blitz until smooth and adjust water to the consistency you like.

Pour into a pot and bring it to a boil again.

Grill the mochi until golden and puffed.

Place mochi in the red bean soup when you served. 

Note: you need not add sugar as the sweetened red bean is already sweet.



  1. Interesting to see rice in this recipe. I presume it is normal white rice?
