The other day, when I was not feeling well, I wanted to eat something soft and comforting. I had Silken Tofu, so I decided to cook this Rice Bowl. Probably it took me less than 5 minutes to cook it as I used leftover cooked Rice. If you are tired and feeling a little down, try this dish. It is very comforting and actually quite nutritious.
150g Silken Tofu *broken OR cut into chunky pieces
1 Egg *whisked
1/2 tablespoon Potato Starch OR Corn Starch *mixed with 1/2 tablespoon Water
1 serving warm Cooked Rice
Finely chopped Spring Onion
1/4 sheet Nori *torn in to small pieces
1/2 cup Chicken Stock *OR 1/2 cup Water & 1/2 teaspoon Asian Chicken Bouillon Powder
1 teaspoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Mirin
Salt & White Pepper
*Note: Today I added 1/8 teaspoon Salt, but you should season it very lightly, especially when you are not feeling well.
- Combine all the Sauce ingredients in a small frying pan OR saucepan. Alter the amount of Salt to suit your taste.
- Bring to the boil and gradually add Potato Starch (OR Corn Starch) mixture stirring well. The sauce thickens instantly, add Silken Tofu and mix to combine.
- Pour the whisked Egg over the Tofu pieces, gently mix, then remove from heat. DO NOT overcook the Egg.
- Half fill a bowl with warm Cooked Rice and cover it with the Tofu and Egg mixture. Add some Spring Onion and Nori, and enjoy.
