Boiled and Seasoned Tofu For a Healthy Bento

Boiled and Seasoned Tofu For a Healthy Bento

Let it simmer until it's sweet and delicious. Since this is also low calorie, I recommend it for those who are dieting. You can easily make this using a frying pan.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Firm tofu
200 g
Carrot
5 cm
Shiitake mushrooms (or shimeji mushrooms)
4
Green onions (for color if available)
as needed
☆Water
300 ml
☆Mirin
2 tablespoons
☆Sake
2 tablespoons
☆Sugar
4 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Mince the shiitake mushrooms and the carrot.
2. Put Step 1 and the ☆ ingredients into the frying pan. Add the tofu as you break it apart. (No need to drain).
3. Let it simmer for 10 minutes on medium heat.
4. Pour in the soy sauce and simmer on a medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Let the liquids evaporate.
5. Once the liquid has evaporated, it's done. Letting it cool allows for the flavors to soak into the ingredients completely.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love boiled and seasoned tofu.
I always pay attention to my calorie count, so I simmered it instead of frying it, and it turned out really delicious.
