Tofu Dengaku (miso topped grilled tofu) / Tofu Recipe

Bookmark and Share
JAPANESE TREND / Japanese Cooking (67)

Introduce other Tofu Recipe.
This time introduce "Tofu Dengaku (miso topped grilled tofu)".
Grilling tofu seems to be a Japanese invention and may be one of the very first ways in which it was prepared.
Originally, Yaki-dofu (grilled tofu) was made by placing the tofu on bamboo skewers and then grilling it around an open hearth fire.

As the style of cooking became popular, skewered tofu was grilled on hibachi (a charcoal brazier) in restaurants and in concession stands.
Yaki-dofu is still made in those traditional ways, but today most people use their stove broilers to grill the tofu. Yaki-dofu is served sizzling hot with shoyu or miso, or used as an ingredient in soups, oden, and other recipes.
Here is my favorite recipe for grilled tofu using miso as a "barbeque" topping.



Tofu Dengaku (miso topped grilled tofu)

INGREDIENTS

2 blocks of regular firm tofu
3/4 cup of white dengaku miso... see recipe under
miso

6 tablespoons of red dengaku miso (see recipe under miso)
1 teaspoon of very finely grated orange or lemon peel
1/3 cup of lightly steamed spinach leaves


Remove the excess moisture from the tofu by wrapping it in a clean towel and placing it between 2 cutting boards, let stand for 30 minutes.
Now cut the tofu into slabs about a 1/2 inch thick and two inches long.

Prepare the miso toppings.
To make the white miso topping mix 6 tablespoons of the white dengaku miso with the grated citrus peel and set aside.
To make the green topping, puree the cooked spinach leaves and then mix thoroughly with 6 tablespoons of white dengaku miso.
The red dengaku miso is ready as it is and will need no further preparation.

You can grill the tofu in one of two ways, in an oven broiler or on the stove top marshmallow style!
If you choose the oven broiler, place the tofu on aluminum foil and broil each side until nicely browned...
If you choose the stove top method, skewer the tofu with a long metal fork or bamboo skewer and hold just above the flames until the tofu is browned...
Now, spread each of the tofu slabs with one of the three colored dengaku miso toppings and grill again until lightly browned. Serve hot.
