Miso Vegetable and Tofu Salad
Miso 6 oz
Mirin ½ cup
Sake ¼ cup
Sifted sugar 3 tablespoons
Bite sized vegetables 4 cups
Red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon
Grilled or baked tofu 12 oz
Cut the tofu into small bite sized pieces. Combine the miso, mirin, sake and sugar in a sauce pan and set it to boil. Lower the heat and let it simmer for around 20 minutes, until the dressing thickens up a bit. Add the red pepper flakes and then remove it from the heat. Set the dressing to cool. Set another pot of water to boil. Add salt and take the bite sized vegetables (such as broccoli florets, asparagus, cauliflower, green beans, etc.) and blanch them in the hot water for a little more than one minute. Remove the vegetables from the hot water and then run cold water over them. Put the vegetables into a large bowl and then pour out about one third cup of the dressing over the vegetables till they are well coated. Add the tofu now and toss well with the vegetables. You may sprinkle some of the red pepper flakes to suit your taste.
