Making fried tofu canapes:

Step 1: prepare tofu cheese - the first step.

Tofu is very popular in the cuisine of Japan and China. This low-calorie cheese is made from soybeans, and it is one of the most nutritious protein foods that do not contain fat and carbohydrates. Wrap the tofu cheese in a paper towel, and then spread it in this form on one side of the tray. The very base of the tray is slightly raised at a slight angle, laying a cloth towel under it, wrapping it in a roll. This must be done so that the juice starts to drain from the cheese ingredient and thus the cheese becomes drier. This process will take 15-20 minutes.

Step 2: prepare the sauce.

We will make the sauce from miso and sweet sake. Miso pasta as well as tofu cheese is one of the main products of Japanese cuisine and is prepared from soybeans with the addition of water and salt. And sweet sake is an alcoholic drink made from rice. We take a bowl and with the help of a tablespoon we pour miso, sake into it, and with this very table object we add sugar to our ingredients. Mix everything well and put the container in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. To warm the mixture slightly. After that we take out a bowl with the mixture and once again mix well until smooth.

Step 3: prepare tofu cheese - the second stage.

Take the tofu from the tray and remove the paper towel from it. We transfer our ingredient to a cutting board and use a knife to cut the cheese into small pieces in thickness so that they can be well fried. And in terms of area, the slices should be such that sauce can be laid on them, so that it does not drain from them. Then we transfer our ingredient to a plate.

Step 4: Cooking Tofu

After the cheese has acquired the desired shape, take a frying pan, pour olive oil into it and put the container on medium heat. Holding a frying pan with a kitchen tack, transfer cheese to it with a wooden spatula or a tablespoon and fry it on one side, and then turn each piece of tofu, on the other hand, until a golden crust forms. We take the cheese from the pan using the same dining equipment and put it on a plate so that it cools down a bit. And now we string the finished ingredient on skewers.

Step 5: prepare the fried tofu canapes.

Spread the slightly cooled fried tofu with skewers on the dish. Using a tablespoon, pour the sauce onto each cheese slice.

Step 6: Serve the fried tofu canapes.
