Creamy Sesame Tofu

Creamy Sesame Tofu

This recipe is originally by an owner of a tofu restaurant in Kamakura and has been modified for home cooks. Enjoy the subtle balance of the creaminess with the elegant flavor of sesame!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Kudzu starch
40 g
White sesame paste
3 tablespoons
Water
400 ml
Sugar
1 tablespoon
Mirin
a small amount
Sake
a little

Steps

1. Put the kudzu starch and water in a pan. When the kudzu starch is almost completely dissolved, add all the other ingredients to heat.
2. Using a wooden spatula, scrape the bottom of the pot while heating the mixture. When the mixture thickens, stir quickly like you're making a paste. Continue to knead for a brief time after the mixture becomes bubbly, then turn the heat off.
3. Pour into a container. After the tofu mixture cools down slightly, chill it in the fridge. Enjoy with wasabi soy sauce. It becomes a dessert if you serve it with kuromitsu.
