Easy but Genuine Sesame Tofu with Miso Sauce

Easy but Genuine Sesame Tofu with Miso Sauce

The texture is just like the sesame tofu made with kudzu starch!! The mixture is thickened with corn starch, so the sesame seeds do not sink to the bottom. You can use either white or black sesame seeds.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Sesame seeds
3 tablespoons
Water
100 ml
Milk
100 ml
Gelatin leaves
2 sheets (3 g)
Corn starch
1 tablespoon
Salt, sugar
a pinch each
Miso sauce:
Miso
1 teaspoon
Mirin
1/2 teaspoon
Sugar
1/2 teaspoon

Steps

1. Soak the gelatin in water.
2. Grind the sesame seeds (until oil comes out and it is moistened). You can use a food processer.
3. Warm the milk in a microwave at 600 W for 50 seconds. In a bowl, add the warmed milk and the drained and squeezed gelatin and mix until the gelatin dissolves.
4. Add the water and the sesame seeds from Step 2 into the bowl from Step 3, and mix them well. Add the cornstarch and mix more.
5. Microwave the mixture from Step 4 at 600 W for 2 minutes. Using a whisk, mix it really well until it thickens and the sesame seeds no longer sink to the bottom.
6. Season it with salt and sugar. Dip the mold in water and pour the mixture in it. Chill it in the refrigerator.
7. Transfer it into a serving bowl. Eat it with your favorite sauce. Miso sauce, sesame sauce, wasabi and soy sauce, or black sugar syrup go well with this tofu.
