Sweet & Simple

White bean shiso daifuku

Shiso is one of my favourite Japanese flavours, especially in sweets. It is often added to make umeboshi but I’ve seen it used a lot of a basil replacement in recipes. It’s really fresh and peppery and a little sweet.

One of my favourite sweet shops in my old neighborhood had a green shiso manjū that I would buy in bulk so I was overjoyed to see Togetsu has a super lovely purple shiso white bean daifuku.
