Directions

  1. In a dry heavy skillet over medium heat, stir the sesame seeds and dried sardines until they give off their fragrance but don't burn, about 2 minutes. Place the sesame seeds and dried sardines in the work bowl of a small food processor, and pulse until ground to a fine powder.
  2. Place the dried sardine mixture in a large bowl, and stir in the miso to make a very thick paste. Add boiling water and mix to a smooth, creamy consistency, and gently stir in the cubed tofu, green onions, and red pepper flakes.

Simple and elegant! I can see the correlation of this being a comfort food. One tip, though, to be absolutely right and fresh, the sardines have to be fresh caught or local grown. Otherwise, don't trust them and don't use them. There could be trace amounts of mercury in them.
