The most important part of this recipe is the paste.
1 piece of firm tofu. The water content in firm tofu is much lesser than ordinary tofu. It doesn’t break easily.
Sesame and paste ingredient
1 teaspoon of salted miso
1/2 tablespoon of sesame seed oil
1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of cooking oil
1 teaspoon of Mirin
1 teaspoon Toasted sesame seed.
Mix all the above into a paste. It should be a watery texture to make speading easy. Adjust the saltiness by adding salted miso according to preference. To adjust the texture, add sesame seed oil.
Slice a piece of firm tofu horizontally. This is to make the tofu approximately 1 inch thick. Pat dry with clean kitchen towel
Spread the paste liberally over the tofu. Place tofu on a lightly oiled baking tray.
Baked in a medium heat.
After 5 minutes remove from oven and spread remaining paste over the tofu.
Return the tofu into the oven and continue to bake.
Use an even and medium heat to slowly bring out the fragrance of the paste while cooking the tofu.
I took approximately 20 min of baking to complete the cooking.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
It goes well with cooked rice or salad.
