Hiyayakko Chilled Tofu

Hiyayakko Chilled Tofu

This is a must-try for shiso lovers! Simple, but it goes surprisingly well with hiyayakko chilled tofu!

Ingredients: 1 serving

about 100 g
Shiso leaf
about 1/2 teaspoon
Ra-yu or sesame oil
to taste


1. Mix together finely chopped shiso, miso and ra-yu. If you don't like it spicy, use sesame oil instead of ra-yu.
2. Put the combined ingredients in Step 1 on top of the tofu and it's done.
3. If you pour a little soy sauce under the tofu, just enough to color it slightly before putting the tofu in the serving dish, it will round out the flavors. Don't pour soy sauce over the tofu, or it will clash with the saltiness of the miso.
