What Is Traditional Yudofu

Yudofu is cooked Tofu served in a hot broth. Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients for Traditional Yudofu

  • 2 packages silken tofu, sliced into 8 pieces. Don't cut it too small because if it's too small it doesn't feel good into the throat
  • 1 oz kelp

Dipping Sauce for Traditional Yudofu

  • 1 teaspoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 stalks green onion, thinly sliced

Instructions for Traditional Yudofu

So this is the traditional Yudofu pot. You set up hot water and Kelp inside and then heat it up the Tofu, inside.And this is the dipping sauce. You heat the dipping sauce and also it goes to the hot water. So, it keeps warm when you're eating it.Bring water and kelp to almost boil. Take 3 tablespoons of kelp broth out from the Yudofu pot and put it on the side. Add sliced silken tofu and heat them up gently. Do not boil. I'm going to show you how to make dipping sauce. First, Sake, one tablespoon sake. In a medium pot, add Mirin and sake and cook out the alcohol, about 1 minute. Add 3 tablespoons kelp dashi and half cup soy sauce.
