I love Tofu and all soy bean curd products, but I never knew Chinese style firm tofu until I first tried it in Australia. I love it especially ‘Organic Firm Tofu’ that are available from ALDI stores. Japanese Tofu are all wonderful for soups and salads, but sometimes they are too soft and delicate especially when I cook them with other ingredients. Please use firm type for this dish.


2 to 4 Servings


1 (400-500g) Firm Tofu
Salt for seasoning
1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil

Walnuts Miso Sauce

1/3 cup Walnuts
3 tablespoons Miso *dark colour Miso recommended
1/2 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Sugar
2 tablespoons Mirin

  1. Cut Tofu into 4 to 5cm square and about 2 cm thick pieces. Season lightly with Salt. *Best Method: Soak Tofu pieces in Brine (salty water) for 1-2 hours if you have time.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium to high heat and cook Tofu until both sides are lightly browned .
  3. Place them on a griller tray and put some Walnuts Miso Sauce on top and cook under griller until sauce get slightly burnt.
