Fend Off the Heat with… Tofu.

Not just any tofu. Silken tofu.

If you’re not a fan of coarse, flavorless tofu, let me introduce you to silken tofu.
First of all, the texture is similar to what I imagine a majestic flying unicorn’s fluffy white butt would feel like: magical. It’s like a savory pudding. And because it’s chilled, it makes for a cooling summer meal and/or snack.

For a great filling meal, the two ingredients you will need is rice and silken tofu. Top with anything you fancy.

I topped my rice and tofu with sliced cabbage, kimchi, and canned tuna. Not to mention a generous handful of chopped spring onion.
Before you dig in, add a dash of sesame oil and soy sauce. For a added brightness, add a squeeze of lemon.

Mix well with chopsticks and enjoy. I also had leftover danmuji (sweet pickled radish) in my fridge.

If you want to go all out, add a poached egg. If you have access to fresh eggs, add a fresh egg yolk.

For a refreshing snack or as a great anju, or food eaten with drinks, add just a few ingredients with the tofu.

Spoon the tofu into a bowl. Add chopped spring onions and a small bunch of katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes). Add a dash of lemon juice and soy sauce to taste. So delicious and fresh. And even if you eat a whole plate of this stuff, no guilt. Because it’s healthy. duh.

Until next time! 🙂
