Tofu no niku miso kake(豆腐の肉みそかけ)

I put flavorful meat miso(=niku miso) on top of tofu.

The niku miso with the spiciness of gochujang and the umami of red miso is perfect for rice. Tofu is the main dish, so it is healthy(*ˊᵕˋ)♡‧₊

Niku miso has a concentrated umami, so it goes well with rice, noodles and tofu. Children will love it too. For small children, gochujang can be omitted.

Gochujang is a Korean seasoning that has both sweetness and spiciness.

What types of tofu are there??

To make tofu, soybeans are first soaked in water overnight and ground in a blender. Add water to this, bring to a boil, then squeeze. This will separate the soy milk and okara. Tofu is made by mixing bittern with soy milk.

Tofu is low in fat and high in protein. It is also rich in calcium.

Tofu has a light taste, so it is an ingredient that can be easily used in any kind of Japanese, Western, or Chinese cuisine. The types of tofu are divided into “momen”, “soft” and “kinugoshi”.

Momen means cotton, and kinu means silk.

Momen has a firm texture and the taste of seasonings is easy to get used to.
Kinugoshi has a smooth texture and a light taste. Soft is right in the middle.

Use whatever you like. I used soft tofu.

①Chop the garlic .

④When it boils, turn off the heat and add the potato starch dissolved in the water.

⑤When it boils again, turn off the heat.

⑥Heat up the tofu in the microwave.

When making niku miso, it is better to use red miso. The red miso that I always use is Fundokin’s “Ofukuro Akamiso”. The scent is not too strong, so it is easy to match with various dishes.

I love this gochujang and have bought it many times.
