Easy Japanese Recipes

Hot Tofu (Yudofu) | JustOneCookbook.com

Thanksgiving is coming up soon and it’s a happy time as families get together.  I’m also spending Thanksgiving with my husband’s family in Taiwan and it’s pretty warm here in Kaohsiung (高雄), Taiwan where I stay.  It’s  a bit difficult for me to imagine American Thanksgiving and the beauty of autumn at the moment with the A/C blasting all day in 78F (26C) weather.

Here is a light and healthy vegetarian tofu recipe that might come in handy for the next few days after the big Thanksgiving feast – it’s called Hot Tofu (Yudofu 湯豆腐).

This dish is unbelievably easy and the only ingredients you need are just dashi kombu and tofu.  I’ve seen dashi kombu in the Japanese isle of typical Asian markets so hopefully you are able to find it easily.  If you don’t have an Asian market nearby, you can order online as well.

Basically the idea is to make stock using dashi kombu, and then throw some tofu in.  Yes, that’s it!  Of course you are welcome to add any vegetables to add extra nutrition and color; however, today I kept it simple by adding Japanese herbs called Mitsuba to enjoy the simple flavor of tofu.  It would be the best if you can purchase fresh tofu or make your own tofu!

How do you eat it?  There are many sauces that go well with warm tofu.  You can use soy sauce, ponzu, sesame sauce, or sauce made with miso.  Today I made a special soy sauce-base sauce with bonito flakes (katsuobushi) to add more dashi flavor instead of just soy sauce (this sauce is not vegetarian).  I also sprinkle scallions and shichimi togarashi (Japanese 7 flavor chili pepper).

This can be an appetizer, side dish, or simply a meal on its own.  If you want to add meat, you can try my Hot Pot (Japanese Nabe) Recipes including Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki.  Enjoy!

Hot Tofu (Yudofu) Recipe
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: Serves 1-2
Ingredients
  • 1 Momen Tofu (in the US it’s called “regular” tofu, which is between silken and firm)
  • Mitsuba or any green vegetable you like for color
  • About 2 inch Dashi Kombu
  • 1 Tbsp. sake
  • ¼ tsp. salt
Sauce (optional)
Toppings
Instructions
  1. Gently clean the dashi kombu with a damp cloth (DO NOT WASH) but leave the white powdery substances which contribute to the umami flavor in the stock.
  2. In donabe (Japanese clay pot), put dashi kombu and pour water till 70% full. Let the kombu soak for 1-2 hours. Or you can soak the kombu while cooking on the lowest heat for 15 minutes if you are in a hurry.
  3. Meanwhile, make sauce. Put sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan.
  4. When boiling, add bonito flakes (katsuobushi).
  5. Mix well with chopsticks and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Pour the sauce into a small serving dish. You don’t have to strain; it’s okay if some bonito flakes go into the sauce.
  7. These leftover bonito flakes have nice flavor and you can use it as filling for Okaka Onigiri.
  8. When the kombu dashi stock is ready (after 1-2 hours), bring the stock to a boil on medium high heat. Once boiling, add sake and salt.
  9. When boiling again, cut the tofu to any size you like (a whole tofu, halves, 6 pieces, etc) and put it in the kombu dashi stock.
  10. When tofu is heated through, add mitsuba. If you plan to use other vegetables, make sure are they cooked thoroughly.
  11. Serve with the sauce and toppings of your choice while the tofu is hot.

Itadakimasu!

    Gorgeous recipe Nami – as always! I’ve not heard the term “hot tofu” before but I love all the elements here and especially the simplicity ;-). It’s always nice to have nutritious recipes like this on hand when times are rushed or when recovering from overeating :). I hope you are having a wonderful visit in Taiwan – the AC would definitely bring a new element… Happy Thanksgiving from Canada! xo.

    Such a beautiful dish and so easy to prepare for a light family meal. As always your presentations make it special and unique. I love the way the blanched mitsuba leaf was wrapped around the cube of tofu.

    That’s something I have to work on in my own posts. I usually just snap pictures of the finished dish having neglected to purchase any appropriate garnishes. My green onion is risned, dried and sliced into rings and then frozen away in a small container to be added to soup etc. Of course. thawed frozen green onion seems limp and lifeless when added as garnish to a donburi. :( What to do?

    • Nami November 20, 2012, 3:19 pm

      I purposely buy some fresh greens/herbs just for photo shoot. It adds nice accent and I think it’s inevitable part of food photography. You can keep just a few in a glass of water, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge – it will last longer. :)

    Dear Nami,

    When I was younger I never liked tofu but when I started learning how to cook, I think tofu is one of the best and most flexible ingredients to cook with, let alone so delicious. One of my all-time favourite Taiwanese dish is dark stir-fried minced pork that is ladled over steamed rice and topped with a wobbly fried egg :) I am sure Shen knows about this dish. One of my fave comfort foods at home.

    Late as ever these past few days, just opened my fridge door to see a packet of organic firm tofu and wonder what to do with it! Thank you, Namiko-san: all fixed now!! We have plenty of tofu available even in the country here in Oz, but the choice always seems to be twixt ‘firm’ and ‘silky’. Tho’ beautiful organic seems always available now . . . Keep on having a wonderful time: Thanksgiving almost over for you by the time you read this!! I suppose you are not returning immediately to have two of the Holiday :) !

    What a great idea for a light meal during this overeating, overabundant holiday! I don’t think of tofu as a major component of a meal or in this case, the meal. Usually, I see it stirred with veggies and noodles. I love the warmed tofu with a simple and highly tasty sauce. Thanks for thinking of our dietary needs Ms. Nami!!! :) When I pick up my turkey tomorrow, I’ll be picking up some tofu! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your in-laws in Taiwan!

    Looks delicious; though I have to point out that it’s not actually vegetarian. Bonito flakes are dried, fermented and smoked skipjack tuna, and fish isn’t vegetarian. If you need a term for it what you’re looking for is pescetarian, which is vegetarian but includes seafood in the diet.

    Reply
    • Nami November 22, 2012, 1:28 am

      Hi Anders! Thank you for pointing that out. I meant the main dish Hot Tofu (yudofu) is vegetarian, and choices of sauces and toppings are up to you. There are many condiments available for this dish (miso, ponzu, soy sauce, like I mentioned in the post). I updated with “(optional)” in the recipe to avoid confusing. Thank you so much for letting me know! :)

    Hi, Nami! I do really enjoy learning how to handle and cooking correctly unfamiliar ingredients for me e.g. how to clean properly and soak Kombu. Actually, cleaning kombu reminds me on how to clean properly mushrooms although for different reasons. Mushrooms if washed will be mushy b/c they absorb water like sponges while kombu will lose its umami flavor. Thanks for the tips again! I hope you have had a great time with your in-laws in Taiwan. Tchau!!! :)
    P.S: What does itadakimasu mean? Is a Japanese or Taiwanese expression?

    Love love love this, Nami! I’ve never been a huge tofu fan, but it’s growing on me. ;) Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. xx

    Beautiful photos, Nami! I recall having a similar dish in Japan on a trip there once and it was absolutely beautiful – such lovely clean flavours. Glad to see I can easily replicate it at home! :)

    Hi Nami!
    Honestly I have never seen tofu that looks this good! I can’t remember the last time I used tofu in a recipe ;-(. I think you’ve shown in your post how to savor tofu in a flavorful broth with veggies, herbs or a sauce …and it looks just fantastic!

    You make tofu look so beautiful! I could definitely use a lighter meal like this after Thanksgiving. :)

    Nami san, 湯豆腐を見ると心がとっても温まります。豆腐を有り難く頂けるというのは、やはり日本人だからですね。本当に美味しそう!もうすぐ久々に帰国するので、思う存分食べてこようっと (笑)。写真とっても素敵ですよ!

    How fun. The photos looks incredible. I always regretted us not visiting my husband’s graduate school friend from Taiwan.

    Pablo, who is so fond of tofu, will love this for sure. And I have all I need, I bought some kombu dashi (found it at Whole Foods actually) for the broth for the agedashi tofu, so I’m all set!

    This was so good, and my three year old loved it! She asked for seconds, then thirds

      Hi Kristi! I’m so happy to hear you and your three year old daughter enjoyed this! It’s one of my son’s all time favorite dishes too. :) Thank you for your feedback!
