15feb1:00 pm4:00 pmPlant Based Japanese and How to Make TofuThe basic Japanese meal, plant-based and homemade tofu

Event Details

The Japanese have the right idea about healthy eating.  A traditional meal is made up of several components, such as a bowl of perfect miso soup, a bowl of rice, an entree, and side dishes of vegetables and pickles. The dishes are colorful, bright, and beautiful to the eye.  They’re eaten slowly with chopsticks.

I’ve worked hard to develop a fantastic plant based dashi broth as a base for the miso soup, and several variations of miso soup using common ingredients.  This miso soup can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Additionally, we will make home made tofu from soybeans.  Our tofu will be used to make soboro, a deliciously seasoned tofu.  We will also make Japanese style simmered kabocha squash, grilled shiitake mushrooms, and spinach with sesame dressing along with quick pickles.  We will sit down an enjoy a meal with Japanese dishes and and chopsticks!
