Sweet and Spicy Tofu with Grated Onion

Sweet and Spicy Tofu with Grated Onion

This makes a great side dish or beer snack.
It goes great with rice.
It's also a macrobiotic recipe.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Firm tofu
1 block
Katakuriko (cake flour would be OK)
As needed
Sesame oil
As needed
★Onion (grated)
★Ginger (grated)
1 knob
3 tablespoons
★Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
★Beet sugar
2 teaspoons


1. Press down on the tofu and thoroughly drain the water. Cut into whatever sizes you like, and coat with the katakuriko.
2. Heat up some sesame oil in a frying pan, and cook the tofu on both sides until they are golden brown. Stir in the mixed ★ ingredients and simmer over medium heat.
3. Flip the tofu over once the mixture has reduced to half. Once it has reduced further so that it is thick, the dish is ready to serve.
4. Soboro version: Break up the drained tofu by hand into a frying pan, and mash it up with a spatula as you cook it to evaporate the excess moisture.
5. Stir in the ★, reduce it again, and then put it on top of a bowl of rice. You now have a soboro don.
