A light, tasty entrée.



Wrap tofu in a clean kitchen towel and let stand for 30 minutes to drain excess water.

Mix miso, sugar, mirin, sake and sesame oil together until smooth.

Cut tofu into 8 oblongs. Broil under, or barbecue over, a high heat for about 3 minutes on each side.

Spread the miso mixture over the tofu, sprinkle with sesame seeds and cook under moderate heat, or to the side of a barbecue, until the miso bubbles slightly and is dry on top.

After cooking, wooden skewers can be inserted through the tofu for easy eating.

broiled tofu w/miso recipe

Hello, Do you mean a whole cup of miso paste in this recipe? Thanks!

You're right to question that. I checked with the author and he has adjusted the miso paste amount to 1/2 cup. We will have that changed in the online recipe.
