Agedashi tofu literally translate to deep fried tofu inside dashi broth. I previously shared agedashi tofu recipe but it was served with teriyaki sauce. Here’s the traditional agedashi recipe and it’s very simple to make. Enjoy!
It’s been a while since I posted a side dish so I want to share a popular green bean recipe. Side dishes (Osouzai, お惣菜) are predominately vegetables. As I had mentioned in my previous posts, typical Japanese meal consists of a bowl of rice, a bowl of miso soup, the main dish, and 1-2 side dishes. A popular way to prepare side dish is Shiraae, mixing lightly-cooked vegetables with crumbled tofu, miso, and sesame seeds. Spinach and green beans are commonly used for Shira-ae dish.
