Light and Fluffy Flourless Tofu and Natto Buchimgae

Light and Fluffy Flourless Tofu and Natto Buchimgae

Just as the name says, I just mixed tofu and natto together, added an egg and pan-fried it. Enjoy this high-protein, low-calorie sake appetizer.

Ingredients: 12 slices

Silken tofu
1/2 block
Natto (with the accompanying sauces)
1 pack
Garlic chives (cut into 2-3 cm pieces)
1/2 bunch
(Bonito flakes - optional)
1 teaspoon


1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl, and mix while mashing the tofu.
2. Thinly spread some sesame oil on the bottom of a (preferably non-stick) frying pan, and put in the mixture from step 1 a scoop of a ladle at a time. Pan fry until golden brown on one side without the lid, then flip over.
3. If you use an electric griddle, you can make several at once, and they will be ok if you leave them for a bit.
4. Serve with ponzu sauce or mayonnaise or doubanjiang to taste.

Story Behind this Recipe

I just experimented whether I could make this without any flour, and it was delicious. I was eating them as I was mixing the batter, so you may end up with more than I did.
