Tofu Casserole

Food.and.Wine1's picture
Chef Takashi Yagihashi serves a pot of broth with tofu and vegetables, including kombu (a seaweed). Diners pluck out the ingredient they want and dip it in flavorings, including soy, mirin and yuzu. This dish is already supernutritious; to simplify it, use supermarket ingredients and combine everything in the pot;no dipping required.

  Water 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Finely grated fresh ginger 2 Teaspoon

In a large saucepan, bring the dashi and water to a simmer. Add the grated ginger, sliced shiitake, edamame, tofu and water chestnuts and simmer over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Add the spinach, soy sauce, mirin and lemon juice and stir just until the spinach is wilted. Serve in bowls with the scallion and bonito.

Notes: Instant dashi is Japanese stock made from bonito (dried tuna flakes) and seaweed. Look for it in the Asian section of supermarkets.
