Macrobiotic Koya Dofu Faux Meat Sauce

Macrobiotic Koya Dofu Faux Meat Sauce

A faux meat sauce that uses koya dofu in place of ground meat.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Koya dofu (freeze-dried tofu)
2 blocks
Whole canned tomatoes
1 tin
1/2 medium
Green pepper
Shiitake mushrooms
3 tablespoons
◎Granulated soup stock (Vegi-cook: Refer to the Steps)
2 teaspoons
◎Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
1 clove
Grapeseed oil (or olive oil)
as needed


1. Rehydrate and wring out the koya dofu, then use a blender to break it up into tiny pieces.
2. Mince the vegetables.
3. Heat some oil in a frying pan, then add the minced garlic. Once it becomes fragrant, add the vegetables and the koya dofu and cook for 5 minutes.
4. Add the canned tomatoes to the frying pan while smashing them with a spatula. Simmer over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes.
5. Add the ◎ ingredients, and once evenly combined, it's complete.
6. I used this Vegi-cook brand of soup stock. It's a granulated seasoning made from vegetables.

Story Behind this Recipe

I'm currently studying a macrobiotic diet. I thought of making meat sauce with koya dofu as a substitute.
