SILKEN TOFU WITH AVOCADO (e’li dou fu, for four)

7 ounces silken tofu

2 tablespoons light or tamari soy sauce diluted with 1 tablespoon water

a hint of wasabi paste (optional)

½ teaspoon sesame oil

½ perfectly ripe avocado, sliced


1.Turn the block of silken tofu out onto a serving dish.  Cut the block into 1/8 to 3/8 inch slices, then push down gently so the slices lean towards one end of the dish.

2.  Pour over the diluted soy sauce (with the wasabi stirred in, if you wish), and sesame oil.  Top with avocado and serve immediately.
