Silken Tofu with Wasabi

Posted by Admin on Food & Drinks

For kid – without wasabi … 
I read about Goma-dofu (Sesame Tofu) – a special dish where the tofu is made using sesame paste and kuzu powder (Japanese arrowroot potato). It is served with dashi and wasabi.  So, I replace the sesame tofu with silken tofu and serves with dashi and wasabi.
Preparation:      10  mins,  Cooking time:         5 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
°         1 tube silken tofu (250g), steamed or blanched, drained well cut into six sections
°         wasabi
°         some roasted sesame seeds (optional), for garnish

Quick Dashi Sauce
°         45ml water or dashi stock
°         1½  teaspoons sugar
°         1½  tablespoons light soy sauce
°         7.5ml cooking rice wine (optional)

Method

  1. To make the sauce: add 30ml water with sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir in cooking rice wine and light soy sauce.
  2. Place the tofu on individual serving plates and pour in dashi stock.
  3. Top with wasabi, sprinkle some sesame seeds on it and serve.
