Effortless Sesame Tofu

Effortless Sesame Tofu

This is a sesame tofu with a texture somewhere between chewy and smooth. It's full of soy milk and sesame paste so you'll get a good dose of soy beans.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Sesame paste
2 tablespoons (30 g)
Soy milk
200 ml
100 ml
1/2 teaspoon (1.5 g)
2 tablespoons (20 g)
4 tablespoons (60 ml)


1. Add the water and kanten to a small saucepan and boil until the kanten dissolves.
2. Pour the soy milk and sesame paste into the mixture from Step 1 and mix well.
3. Once everything is thoroughly mixed, pour in the ※ katakuriko and water mixture and beat well.
4. Pour the mixture evenly into 4 serving containers and once cooled, chill in the refrigerator.

Story Behind this Recipe

Even though I didn't have any kudzu starch, I thought that if I added kanten and katakuriko I could probably achieve the same chewy texture.
