Nothin’ Tastier than Cold Tofu on a Hot Summer Day!

In addition to chilled soba (buckwheat) noodles with dipping sauce, one of my favorite summer-time dishes is cold silken tofu garnished with green onions and ginger, drizzled with soy sauce. Called hiyayakko, it’s quick, simple, and mighty tasty!!! Mumu and his wife have each created their LEGO versions of this delicious dish. In the Mumu household, they put bonito flakes and Japanese mustard on the tofu instead of grated ginger.

Here’s Mumu’s version (I love the drizzled soy sauce):

And here’s Mumu’s wife’s tofu (the yellow must be the mustard):

The family that builds (and eats cold tofu) together stays together!
