5 Minutes in the Microwave Spicy Garlic Chive & Tofu with Bonito Flakes

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Tofu (firm)
1/2 block
Garlic chives
2-5 leaves
Shimeji mushrooms
1 packet
●Bonito flakes (small packet)
1/2 packet
●Salt
1/2 teaspoon
●Soy sauce
2 teaspoons
●Ra-yu
to taste
●Sesame oil
as needed
Ground sesame seeds
to taste

Steps

1. Microwave the tofu for 3-4 minutes, pat dry the moisture with a paper towel, and crumble.
2. Tear the shimeji mushrooms into small clumps and cut the garlic chives into 3 cm long pieces. Place the shimeji in a large heat-proof bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Add the garlic chives and heat for another minute.
3. Add the tofu and all of the ● ingredients into Step 2 and combine well. Sprinkle with ground sesame seeds to finish.
4. This is the ra-yu that I use. It's made from refined sesame oil and has a wonderful scent.
