No that is not in English, in fact it’s Japanese. Hiyayakko is a chilled tofu dish with toppings. It doesn’t get much easier than that. This recipe is super simple to prepare and delicious. I enjoy eating this as an appetizer or a midday snack. Very good on a hot summers day to cool you down and eat healthy as well.
Mise en Place:
-1 Pack Firm tofu, drained and cut into rectangles (see above)
-Soy Sauce, TT
-2 oz Daikon or Radish, sliced thin and julienne
-Bonito (Dried fish flakes), TT
-2 Scallions, sliced
-1 Inch Fresh Ginger, Grated
Method of Prep:
-Cut Tofu into 1″ by .5″(inch) rectangles and press between 2 paper towels and dishcloths until dry.
