"This is one of the really traditional easy dishes in Japan. My dad likes it so much. We often eat this dish with the rice, miso soup, grilled fish and Japanese pickles in the morning." — kyoko

1/4 (12 ounce) package
1 1/2 teaspoons
grated fresh ginger root
thinly sliced green onion
bonito shavings (dry fish flakes)
toasted sesame seeds
I ate this same dish (minus the sesame seeds) growing up...still LOVE IT- very simple but tasty. Holly T- you can order dashi granules online from Amazon if you can't find them in your ethnic store (never seen it in regular supermarkets).
Perfect. I've been craving this and it's so simple and perfect. Nom. Dashi granules are often sold as "hondashi" or Bonito Soup Stock Bouillon. It doesn't say "granules" on the package. I found it in the spice section of 99 Ranch in a box.
A delicious, refreshing, & light dish. I served it as a side dish at a sushi making party with some friends. Bonito shavings can be hard to find, but I found a bottle of bonito flakes+black sesame seeds+seaweed flakes all in one at a local Japanese market. The black sesame flakes really pop against the tofu. Very yummy, will make again.
I was an exchange student in Japan and my Host Mom would serve this for breakfast with rice and miso soup, YUM!! I want to make it but I am not sure where to buy "dashi granules" and "bonito shavings"??? Would they be in the ethnic food aisle or would I have to find a Japanese market?
