Servings: 3

 

Ingredients:

Cornstarch, for coating

3 tablespoons frozen or fresh shelled edamame beans

2 teaspoons peeled and finely chopped fresh ginger

3 tablespoons finely chopped green onion

3 tablespoons moromi miso, or miso

1/2 teaspoon sea salt (omit if the miso you choose is salty)

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 pound firm tofu, drained

Vegetable oil, for deep-frying

Equipment:

plastic wrap

microwave

bowl

food processor

frying pan

Cooking instruction summary:

Procedures 1 Sauté the green onion and ginger in the sesame oil for a couple of minutes, then remove from the heat. Boil the edamame in just enough water to cover for about 5 minutes, until tender yet still firm. Alternatively, put the edamame on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave on high for 30 seconds. 2 Crumble the tofu in a bowl. Add the sautéed green onion and ginger, miso, and salt. Mix together thoroughly using your impeccably clean hands. Alternatively, you can mix this in a food processor, pulsing to combine. When everything is combined to a smooth paste, mix in the edamame. 3 Divide the tofu mixture into nine portions and form round- or oval-shaped flattened nuggets. Coat in cornstarch. Heat 1 inch (2.5cm) of the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. The oil is hot enough when a small piece of the cornstarch-coated tofu dropped into the oil turns brown in a few seconds. Fry the nuggets in batches, taking care not to overcrowd the pan, until browned on both sides. Drain well and cool before packing. 4 Note:These nuggets can be frozen quite successfully. The texture will change a little, but they will still be good. Cold nuggets can be pan-fried in a dry nonstick frying pan over medium heat until crispy on the outside and heated through, or gently poached in dashi stock for a softer texture. They are also good in soup.
