Microwave the silken tofu without covering for 2 minutes! Let it cool, and discard excess moisture.
Cut the mizuna leaves into 5 cm pieces.
Heat the sesame oil in a frying pan, add the stem of mizuna greens first, then crumble the tofu into the pan. Add the shimeji mushrooms. Stir-fry the ingredients in the pan.
Once they are coated with oil, add the leafy part of mizuna greens. Season with the sake and sugar, and stir-fry until tender.
Once the greens are tender, add the mentsuyu and salt. Stir-fry until moisture in the pan cooks off.
You can make side dish for two people from one bunch of mizuna greens.
Story Behind this Recipe
I though it would be nice to make sweet stir-fried vegetables, so I came up with this recipe.
Use plenty of mizuna greens, if you like! If the frying pan is overflowing with mizuna greens, cover with a lid after adding the leafy part, wait for one minute, then they should be easier to stir-fry ♪
