10 min Japanese Simmered Tofu Hot Pot

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Santos

This dish is the epitomy of 'home style' Japanese comfort food. This version is lightening quick, without the need to prepare the fish stock (dashi) that so many real Japanese dishes require. This staple is to be enjoyed in the fall or coming winter months! Enjoy.

Oh yum. Yum and more yum. I like this one lots, both because I like Japanese food, and because I like healthy food. It's got real, classic, Japanese flavor -- tastes like something I might get in a good Japanese restaurant!
