Good Morning Everyone, another beautiful day here in Japan and there’s a cool breeze blow from the south. Today’s recipe is called Tofu with Ricotta Cheese. This a side dish that goes good with any Meat main dish. I make this on special occasions when someone from my hubby work office comes over or some friends I haven’t seen in a while. Well, let’s get started with what we need to make our Tofu with Ricotta Cheese dish.
  • 2 pack soft tofu
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • 5 leaves green perilla, cut into thinly strips
  • dried bonito flakes
  • white sesame
  • For sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1tsp mirin
  • ½tbsp grated ginger

  1. Make sauce: Put the soy sauce, sugar, mirin, and grated ginger in a small pan. And boil briefly and let stand until cool.
  2. Place the tofu in a dish, and place the ricotta cheese on top of tofu and sprinkle with the green perilla, dried bonito flakes, and sesame. Finally, pour over the sauce and serve immediately.
  3. * I think, your choice green perilla it could be good instead of using fresh basil leaves. This recipe is match with white wine and Japanese sake, please chilled well: D
