Easy Tasty Cold Tofu

On 2/13, my "Easy Tasty Cold Tofu" ranked the 1st on Lettuce Club's website. Salt, sesame oil, and garlic really work up the appetite! I used momen-dofu (cotton tofu) which is pretty filling! It's a dish to go with sake or beer, too :D

Please try it out!

Easy Tasty Cold Tofu

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 5min + refrigeration time
Number of servings: 2

300g (10.5oz.) momen-dofu (cotton tofu)
*1 tbsp. sesame oil
*1/2 tsp. salt
*a touch of cracked black pepper
*a bit of grated garlic
chopped scallions
white sesame seeds

1. Boil water in a large pot, break tofu into chunks (with your hands), place in boiling water for about 2 minutes, drain in a colander, cool enough, and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
2. Mix A in a bowl and dress the tofu.
3. Serve in a dish and garnish with chopped scallions and white sesame seeds.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

By boiling tofu, you can remove excess water! Thus, it can absorb the seasonings well!!!

Yummy yummy!

When I go to fancy restaurants and look at their wine list my head goes dizzy! So many! But I personally do no like alcohol so I never drink i hahaha!

  4. Hi suki,

    I'm not good at wines, but I like red wines!

    Good for your health! I don't drink much alcohol (one or two glasses of wine) so I don't have any health prob due to that. hehe
