Since the weather is warming up and you guys are pulling out your barbecues, we thought we'd share this amazing BBQ tofu steaks recipe. These steaks are delicious, so easy to whip up and are such a great source of plant-based protein. If you don't have a barbecue, you can just throw these on the stove using a griddle pan, just like we did!

 

Serves 5  

Prep time: 5 mins
Marinate time: 30 mins
Cook time: 10 mins

Ingredients:

Extra firm tofu
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. honey
2 garlic cloves, chopped
Paprika
OKAZU (enough to base the steaks with)

Method:

1. Cut extra firm tofu into 1/4 inch slices. Salt generously.

2. Press each slice between paper towel to remove excess moisture.

3. Marinade (soy sauce, honey, garlic, paprika) for 30 mins in the fridge.

4. BBQ for 5 mins on each side while occasionally basting with OKAZU.

5. Sprinkle with sesame seeds for garnish.

6. Serve.

Okonomi Yaki (Savory Pancake)

In Japan、 there is a term called ”B級グルメ”. The literal translation of this word in English is B-Grade Gourmet, but more precisely, it means “Budget Friendly Food” or “Affordable Food”. Okonomiyaki, which I will introduce today, is a typical B級グルメ food that everyone loves! It is not a luxury meal, but rather inexpensive, commonplace, yet reputedly tasty food.


My mom used to make okonomiyaki for Sunday lunch. I would like to share this recipe with you.

Matcha " Kuzu-Neri "
Matcha " Kuzu-Neri "

When I returned to Japan this summer, one of the new Japanese sweets that struck me was "Kuzu-Neri". From long-established " Wagashi"  shops to 7-Eleven, these sweets can be found everywhere.  I came up with this recipe before I forget its unique texture, deep taste of green tea, and exquisite sweetness. 

Serve chilled, topped with Tsubuan (red bean paste), kinako (soybean flour), or kuromitsu (molasses). For a sweeter taste, serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Kuzu-Neri is a very refreshing and summery dessert. Give it a try! It is easy to make!
