Vegan Japanese Non-Wheat Steamed Bread

Although I’m not, I understand that being a vegan or vegetarian can be trying at times, and even frustrating when looking for new reipes.
Now, if on top of that you suffer from allergies such wheat allergy it can easily become a nightmare.
Here is one vegan bread recipe that does not make use of wheat flour!
And it is Japanese, although all Asians could say the contrary!LOL

Vegan Japanese Non-Wheat Steamed Bread


-Rice flour: 200 g (sold as “riz blanc”/リブラン in Japan)
-Brown sugar (fine): 100 g
-Cornstarch (vegan one): 2 tablespoons
-Baking powder (vegan one): 2 teaspoons
-Salt: a pinch
-Salad oil or olive oil: 1 tablespoon
-Soy milk: 200 cc/ml


-Pour the rice flour, brown sugar, cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a vinyl pouch and shake until well mixed.

-Pour rice flour mix in a rice steamer/cooker mold. Add soy milk and mix with a spatula. It will appear as slightly more liquid than a pancake mixture.

-Add the oil and mix well. Steam until satisfaction. Don’t hesitate to continue steaming if not satisfied with the consistency. Actually steaming it twice will achieve proper results!
