The hubby and I had this dish at a Hawaiian bar in Tokyo one night and the owner was nice enough to tell us what was in it. I really like this side dish.

Tofu Topped with Kimchie

Serves one

1/4-1/3 block of silken tofu
1 tablespoon yakiniku sauce
1-2 tablespoons kimchie

Wash and drain the tofu. Put in a serving dish deep enough to hold the yakiniku sauce plus some. Top with kimchie. Pour the yakiniku sauce over top. Serve.

It’s that easy.

Tofu topped with roasted garlic and soy sauce

The title says it all.  This is a super easy, super delicious and super simple side dish or snack.  Only three ingredients.  I tried it out on a whim a couple years ago and it is now a staple tofu side dish.

The picture was taken on my iPhone as my camera is broken at the moment.

Tasty and simple

Tofu topped with roasted garlic and soy sauce

2tbsp soy sauce per serving

1 clove roasted garlic per serving

1/2 block of tofu per serving

 

Mash up the garlic clove and mix with soy sauce.  Let sit for five to ten minutes.  Rinse the tofu off and place in a serving bowl.  If you really want to do it properly, the tofu should sit for 1/2hr  to let some of the water drain out.  I usually skip that.  Pour the garlic and soy mixture over the tofu and enjoy.
