Agedashi tofu is a simple way to serve hot tofu. The Tsuyu sauce is light, the best way to highlight the deep complex flavours of Vitasoy Sprouted Egg Tofu.
The tofu is deep fried, leaving the outer shell crispy and the inside creamy soft. Its topped with grated daikon, a cloud of bonito flakes and a sprinkling of thinly sliced spring onions. The savoury Tsuyu sauce is poured around it. The dish is usually served piping hot, so be cautious in not burning your mouth!
