Hijiki Shira-ae ひじき白あえ (Crumbled Tofu with Hijiki & Sesame) Recipe September 25 2018

Hijiki Shira-ae is one of the staples that we'd make and keep in the fridge before a work week as it's not only easy, tasty, and inexpensive; it is healthy, too!

 

 

Shira-ae is a traditional Japanese tofu-based salad dish done by mixing Hijiki, Tofu and Sesame seeds. It is one of our favourite Japanese side dishes to eat and to make at home. 

So imagine our delight when we chanced upon this convenient pack of Hijiki Shira-ae seasoning pack from Japan!

It is a no-brainer method to make Shira-ae for newbies and for people who just want to make it without the hassle of measuring and tasting. 

All you'll need is just two ingredients:

Tofu (we recommend the Organic Tofu for its creaminess) & Hijiki Shira-ae No Moto

*Note: You'll need 2 x Organic Tofu for 1 x Hijiki Shira-ae No Moto.
If you are using just 1 x Organic Tofu, use only half a packet of Hijiki Shira-ae No Moto.

Steps:

1. Empty Tofu into a container (that preferably comes with a lid)
