cold tofu

The easiest and final japanese inspired dish that I made for the Toyota family picnic is simple cold tofu.  Now I like tofu, but this might be an acquired taste. But have an open mind! It’s very light and has a lot of flavor from the tamari and green onions and it’s a nice compliment to the salty and saucy yakisoba and fried yam tempura.

  • 1 pkg medium firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp low-sodoium soy sauce or tamari

  • 1 green onion, finely chopped


  1. Drain the water from the package of tofu and cut into 1-inch cubes. 

  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together soy sauce or tamari and grated ginger. Stir in the green onion, reserving some for the garnish on the top. Pour the sauce over the tofu cubes and serve.

Recipe Notes

You can also put the tofu in a glass container with a lid along with the sauce and let it sit in the fridge to serve later or the next day.
