Broiled tofu with vegetables is another Japanese recipe that you will love. It is a delectable vegetarian dish with a light and smooth flavor. The different vegetables are great with the soft but chewy tofu.
Adjusting the taste to your preference is always an option. You may add some sugar if you want it to be sweet or some chili for some zing.
2 blocks firm tofu, drained
4 fresh shitake mushrooms
1 small carrot peeled, sliced thinly
1 small potato peeled, sliced thinly
1 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
1 red chili, sliced thinly
1 small leek, sliced thinly
1 egg white
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sake
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt to taste
Preheat the broiler and cut the tofu blocks into half. After, place the tofu in between a paper towel and squeeze out the excess moisture.
Rinse the shitake mushrooms and discard the stems. Slice the mushroom caps thinly and place them in a medium sized bowl. Add the carrots, bell peppers, potatoes, chili and egg white. Season them with soy sauce and salt. Place 2 tablespoons of cornstarch into the bowl and mix well.
Dredge the tofu slices with the remaining cornstarch and then top them with the vegetable mixture. Place the vegetable topped tofu in the broiler and cook it for 3-5 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked. Serve immediately.
