Cool Tofu Treat
During the sweltering days of summer, chilled tofu can be quite a delight as a side dish. This simple marinated tofu is equally delicious unadorned or sprinkled as desired with sesame seeds and thinly chopped scallions. Serve on a chilled plate or in a bowl filled with ice cubes and citrus wedges.
Ponzu Marinated Tofu
1 pkg firm tofu, cut into 1/2 in cubes
1 1/2 – 2 cups ponzu
Place tofu cubes in a medium sized, non-metal bowl. Pour ponzu over tofu making sure that tofu is completely submerged. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and set in refrigerator for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, pour liquid from the tofu, reserving ponzu for another use. Keep tofu refrigerated tightly covered until ready to use.
