It was ‘Midori no Hi’ the Greenery Day in Japan on the 4th of May. It’s a national holiday that people should get close to and appreciate nature. Of course we cannot go outside as much as we’d like in the current situation so I am posting a very green sweet as a reminder how wonderful nature is.
This is a ‘Mochi’ sweet with ‘Matcha’ green tea flavoured filling inside and dusted with more Matcha powder.
I used a sweet Azuki (Red) bean paste as well as smooth Matcha flavoured filling inside. Azuki bean paste goes very well with green tea flavour and it also enhance its flavour.
This sweet is Vegan and Gluten free.
Happy Greenery Day!
