Whip Up Some Red Bean Mochi to Enjoy with Bucky Barnes

Stream 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier' on Disney+ now!

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Last week’s premiere of Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier gave us a look into what our heroes have been up to since the Blip. Through government-mandated therapy, Bucky Barnes is on the road to making amends, in his own way of course. 

Bucky’s weekly lunch buddy is Mr. Nakajima, and one of their regular restaurants is Izzy’s, especially if Bucky is paying. It’s there that Mr. Nakajima sees a plate of red bean mochi, and reflects on how it was a favorite dish of his late beloved son. It's also in the premiere episode, "New World Order," that Yori Nakajima is top of his amends list. Missed the finer details of the episode, don't miss out on our Episode 1 Intel Report.

As we wait to see how the series unfolds, you can make your own red bean mochi to enjoy at home while you watch Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, now streaming on Disney+.
