Koya Dofu Gratin (Low-carb)

Koya Dofu Gratin (Low-carb)

The gratin in the photo has fried bacon. The outside is crispy while the inside is tender and fluffy. Koya dofu might not be your favourite, but you wouldn't know they are used in this dish. Serve piping hot.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Koya tofu
1
Egg
1
Soy milk
2 tablespoons
Melting type cheese
as required
Salt, pepper and garlic powder
to taste
Mayonnaise to finish
as required

Steps

1. Soak the koya dofu in plenty of water for a few minutes to rehydrate. After it is rehydrated squeeze out the excess water.
2. Cut the koya dofu into 1 cm cubes. Mix with the melting type cheese and place onto a gratin dish. Salt and pepper.
3. Mix the egg, soy milk and garlic powder well and season with salt and pepper. Pour in the sauce.
4. Squeeze out the mayonnaise through the fine nozzle of the bottle onto the top of the gratin.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes in a hot grill. Check sometimes because the mayonnaise is easy to burn (cover with aluminum foil if it is too brown).
6. If you like, add several slices of fried bacon!
7. This basic recipe is very handy for people who don't want to spend a long time cooking. Use whatever ingredients you prefer. I like adding prawns to this!

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to have ingredients with a bread-like texture in my gratin. I decided on low-carb koya dofu after experimenting.
