Sesame Tofu (ごま豆腐)

We cooked sesame tofu (goma dofu) today.  It is one of typical vegetarian diet (shojin-ryori). 


You can find them in supermakets but almost all of them includes alternative ingredients and/or artificial food additives.  In our class, we made sesame tofu only with sesame seeds and arrowroot starch (kudzu 葛粉), which is the traditional/original recipe for shojin-ryori.


The original recipe gave us rich aroma of sesame and smooth/melting taste which you cannot find in ones sold in supermarkets.
