This rich, creamy side dish is a favorite recipe of our Kuzu producer. The appearance and texture of the finished dish closely resembles silken tofu.


  • 1 cup crushed Mitoku Organic Kuzu
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup tahini
  • Mitoku Organic Shoyu Soy Sauce, to taste
  • Peeled and finely grated ginger to garnish

Preparation Method

  1. In a medium-sized pan, thoroughly dissolve kuzu in the water. Mix in tahini. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. As soon as the mixture begins to bubble, stir briskly and vigorously to prevent lumping and to assure a smooth texture. Continue stirring vigorously approximately 5 minutes.
  2. Pour into a casserole or similar container and chill until firm. Slice into small sections. Sprinkle shoyu (to taste) over individual servings. Top with a dab of grated ginger, and serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
