When I teach Japanese salad in my class, many people are surprised that the dressing is dry, and we don’t use oil normally.
I introduce Shira-ae (salad with Tofu dressing) today, It’s very healthy, but you can enjoy rick texture because of the Tofu for this salad 🙂
1 pack of Tofu
(A) 1.5 Tbs. soy sauce
(A) 2 Tbs. sesame paste(or plain penuts paste)
(A) 1.5 Tes. sugar
1 pack of spinach
1 pack of Shimeji mushroom
1. Drain the water from Tofu (until it became half amount). Place Tofu and all the (A)s in the food processer then mix well.
2. Sautee Shimeji mushroom with 3Tbs. of water and a pinch of salt until there’s no liquid in a pan.
3. Boil the spinach in boiled water for about 20secs. then cool it down with cold water. Drain the water well and cut into 3-4cm pieces.
4. Mix all the ingredients well.
This Tofu dressing is very suit to many kinds of tegetable or fruits, so please use something seasonal at your local place 🙂
