Healthy Simmered Koya Dofu with Tofu and Meat Filling

Healthy Simmered Koya Dofu with Tofu and Meat Filling

I packed some tofu and meat filling into koya dofu and simmered in a sauce. It's healthy, so great for dieters.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Koya dofu
▲Minced meat
200 g
▲Green onions (finely chopped)
4 tablespoons
▲Silken Tofu
100 g
▲ Salt
a small amount
1 tablespoon
400 ml
●Dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
●Soy sauce
3 tablespoons


1. Rehydrate the koya dofu in plenty of water until softened.
2. Combine the ▲ ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Divide the mixture into 5 equal portions and roll them into balls. You don't need to drain the tofu.
3. After you have squeezed excess water out of the koya dofu, make a slit in the middle.
4. Pack the filling mixture from Step 2 into the koya dofu from Step 3. It's easier if you pack the filling into the koya dofu in about 3 batches.
5. Put the ● seasoning ingredients in a pan that just fits the koya dofu, and stir well. Place the koya dofu upright in the pan.
6. Cover Step 5 with a lid and simmer. Once the koya dofu has absorbed the sauce, and the sauce has reduced, it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had leftover meatball mixture with tofu that I used to make a hot pot. So I packed it into koya dofu and made a simmered dish.
