1 package plain mochi
Preheat a waffle iron. Cut a package of mochi into 3 large pieces, width wise. Slice each piece into long finger like pieces, about 1/4" wide. Using 6 to 8 strips for each waffle, place the mochi strips on the hot, ungreased waffle iron and close the top. Cook until puffed and slightly crispy but not too hard and dry, about 3 minutes or until your waffle iron signals that it's done. Remove the waffle and place on a plate. Do not stack the waffles because they will stick together. Serve and eat waffles as son as possible - they are best hot and crispy. Serve with maple syrup and sliced strawberries.
