Silken Tofu with Sweet Miso

Another one! Quick, simple plus impressive! If you consume alcohol, you can add sake or few drop of cooking rice wine to this miso paste. This is another dish that you can play with the presentation using different colour sesame seeds, spring onion/coriander leaf or even chilli slice/flake … Just have some fun with it! Next, I am going to use this sweet miso paste with green tea soba for another recipe …

You can do away with steaming, if you love cold tofu or want to save energy. Steaming or blanching the tofu, will make the texture for some tofu softer.

Preparation: 5 mins, Total time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 4)
° 1 pack silken tofu (300g), steamed or blanched, drained well cut into four sections
° some roasted sesame seeds, for garnish
° few slices spring onion or coriander leaves (optional), for garnish

Sweet Miso Paste

° ¾ tablespoon miso paste
° 1 tablespoon hot water
° 1 tablespoon sugar
° ½ teaspoon sesame oil

1. To make the miso paste: combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
2. Place the tofu on individual serving plates and garnish with spring onion or coriander leaf.
3. Top with sweet miso paste, sprinkle some sesame seeds on it and serve.
