Vegan Wednesday #10


vegan wednesday

I personally have only tried the sweet version so far and this is why I would like to show you some sweet Mochi variations – starting with: Mochi with a peanut butter filling.

If you have never tried Mochi before, I really recommend you give it a go! You might need a little time getting used to because they’re really sticky, but maybe you will love them as much as I do 🙂
