Tonight’s dinner: Agedashi tofu and courgette omelette.

Recipe for agedashi tofu:

  • Take some silken tofu, and drain on kitchen towels for 20 min.
  • Heat an inch or two of corn oil in a wok/pan until just before it starts to smoke.
  • Coat the tofu cubes in some potato flour, and place carefully in the oil. Keep turning the tofu cubes so they’re just lightly crispy all over (almost golden brown).
  • Transfer to small bowls, and spoon over the sauce that has been brought up to the boil:
    1/2 cup dashi stock
    1 tbsp soya sauce
    1 tbsp sake
    1 tsp mirin

Eat ASAP, as it gets soggy very quickly. It’s scrummy!
