Silken tofu is sometimes packaged in shelf-stable boxes, rather than refrigerated. Garnishes such as bonito flakes, shiso, and nori can be found at Asian supermarkets such as 99ranch.com.



Ingredient Checklist
Garnishes (optional)


Instructions Checklist
  • Put onion in a small bowl; add water to cover. Let soak for 10 minutes. Drain well; pat dry with a paper towel.

  • Prepare tofu: Open tofu and invert onto a plate. Use paper towel to blot away excess liquid. If using medium tofu, drain on lint-free towel or 2 stacked sheets of paper towel on a plate.

  • Cut medium or block tofu into 1-inch cubes or 1-inch-thick dominoes; arrange in a shallow bowl or individual dishes. (If using tofu pudding, scoop up large shards with a metal spoon, putting into shallow bowl or individual serving dishes.) Before serving, pour off any whey.

  • Drizzle with soy sauce. Top with green onion, ginger, and optional garnishes (or leave tofu naked and let diners choose their own toppings).
