Our favourite recipe with Shiro Miso: Miso Satoimo Tofu

Cut Satoimo into bite-size pieces

1/2 block firm tofu

1 cup dashi stock (can be prepared with this or kombu)

2 Tbs. white miso

1 Tbs. soy sauce

1 Tbs. maple syrup or 1/2 Tbs. Sugar

Put into a pan with the dashi stock, sugar/maple syrup, then add the tofu.

Bring to a boil and cook down until the liquid is almost gone. Add the soy sauce. Thin out the miso with a little water or dashi until liquid rather than a paste, and add to the pan. Let simmer for a few minutes. Serve hot or cold.
