Cucumber & Tofu, what can I make? Good thing I am not on the Iron ChefJ
I only have to make one meal out of these ingredients and not fiveJ lucky me!
Clean and thinly slice the cucumbers (Japanese, or Persian cucumbers) do not need to cut the skin since they are so fresh. Sprinkle the cucumbers with seal salt and leave for 20 min or so until soft and the rinse and drain.
In the mean time cut Tofu into strips of about half inch wide (extra firm) Broil in oven for about 10-15 minutes until the Tofu Gets firm and little brown.
While the Cucumbers are marinating and the Tofu is getting firm prepare a dressing for the Tofu and the Cucumbers.
1 table spoon of Mirin
2 table spoons of Honey
1 table spoon of Soy Sauce (low sodium)
3 table spoon of rice wine vinegar
1 egg yolk
1 to 2 table spoons of sesame seeds (Black & White) toasted
2-3 sheets of dried Wakame
Blend the ingredients reduce on the oven and as a last step once removed from stove top whipp egg yolk!
Brush the dressing and put it back in the oven and grill it until there is a crisp brown cover on each side. Take the remainder of the dressing tosses with the cucumbers. Once they both are marinated and blended together let the Grilled Tofu cool and place on top of the cucumbers!
