Microwave-steamed Tofu & Hijiki with Gingered Sweet and Sour Sauce

Using tofu and hijiki seaweed it is a very simple and nutritious dish. It's quite healthy too, since the recipe doesn't ask for any extra oil.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Tofu (silken)
300 g
Me-hijiki (dried)
2 tablespoons
Minced chicken breast
100-150 g
Egg
3
Salt and pepper
To taste
Young green scallions (if you like)
Add as much as you like
●Grated ginger
1 piece
●Water
2 tablespoons
●Ponzu
80 ml
Sugar
2 tablespoons
● Katakuriko
1/2 tablespoon

Steps

1. Soak the hijiki seaweed in water until tender and drain.
2. Put the tofu in a bowl and whisk until creamy. Add eggs, minced chicken, salt and pepper and stir.
3. Spread a sheet of cling film on a deep dish (this prevents the tofu mixture sticking to the dish) and pour in the tofu mixture. Cover the dish with another layer of cling film. Make holes to let the steam out. Steam in a 600 W microwave for 11 minutes.
4. Turn over the tofu mixture onto a big serving plate. Put the ● ingredients together in a small sauce pan. Heat and stir until thickened. Pour the sauce over the top of the steamed tofu mixture.
