    If you are a vegetarian, why not try Tofu with Nameko Mushroom sauce? It's super easy:

    1.  Wrap the tofu in paper towels and place it on a cutting board. Tilt the cutting board by putting something under one end. Place a heat resistant dish that weighs 300 g on top of the tofu, and leave it for 1 hour to drain the excess water. Coat the tofu with plain flour before frying.

    2.  Heat a frying pan and coat with vegetable oil. Brown both sides of the tofu and Japanese leek. At the same time, put the dashi stock and thinly sliced Shiitake mushrooms in a sauce pan, and bring it to a boil.

    3. Add the seasonings, and when the mushrooms are cooked through, add the katakuriko dissolved in water to thicken the sauce. 

    4. Serve the fried tofu and Japanese leek onto a plate and pour over the sauce

    5. Enjoy!
