Made this cold tofu yesterday. it's super easy to make but tastes so good! Love it <3!!
mentsuyu가 없는 관계로 간장을 사용했습니다! 아침 식사로 먹으려고 소분해서 만들었는데 두부 자체가 뻑뻑해서 건조한 두부가 되어버렸습니다.. 결국 전자레인지로~ 따끈따끈하고 맛있게 먹었습니다! 맛있어요 두부장같은...
I could eat this every day! Super filling and easy to make!!!

I’m so happy with the results! I tried this marinated cold tofu (with some tweaks in the ingredients) and it was amazing! Thank you so much.

This recipe is amazing, definitely one of my go-to meals now!
This is sooooooo good! Even a depressed person (me) can make this!
Can you reuse the cheesecloth of you wash it thoroughly?
Made this today and omg this is my new go too.
This is next level! I used a hard tofu and it was so tasty 😋 My boyfriend doesn’t like tofu but he really liked this recipe!!! I will make it again for sure❤️
Since I came across this recipe for the first time a couple of weeks ago, it has become one of my go-to meals for lunch at work. Super easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing such amazing recipes, Lisa, and for making it so easy for us to recreate them!
So simple to make and so delicious! Will definitely be making this again for a quick, light lunch 🙂
This is a favorite lunch for me, great for when I have a busy day at work. I put some green onions and furikake on top! I also add a little sriracha in the mixture for a light heat.
