japanese chilled tofu -- hiyayakko (冷奴)

my version -- infused with gochujang, chili crisp, soy; and carrot, daikon, avocado salad with ginger dressing...

"Hiyayakko(冷奴) is Japanese chilled tofu that is served as an appetizer or side dish. The smooth silky and creamy texture of the tofu helps to cool the body and makes a delightful respite on a sweltering day.
To make Hiyayakko, we use silken tofu which has a creamier and velvety texture compared to regular tofu. Silken tofu also contains a lot more liquid, so you need to drain the tofu for 10-15 minutes prior to serving." -- Just One Cookbook

here infused with gochujang chili, mirin, sake, dried garlic and jicama salad...
