  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Miffy Parfait Using Tofu!

    08.September.2021 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In this recipe, I’ll show you how to make an adorable Miffy Parfait using tofu shiratama!

     

    Tofu shiratama can be frozen without hardening, so it’s great to use for cooking as well as making sweets.

     

     

    Ingredients

    250g refined rice flour

    300g silken tofu

    ✩ This is about 1 bag of refined rice flour and 1 piece of silken tofu.

    Canned fruit or fruit of your choice

     

     

    Put the refined rice flour and silken tofu into a bowl and mix well.

    ⚠️ Do not drain the tofu!

    Don’t add water, just these two ingredients.

     

    ✩I knead all ingredients and then freeze it.

    Feel free to freeze it as dough, or boil it first.

    You can put them in Tupperware and store them in water in the refrigerator for a day or two. Don’t worry, they won’t harden!

     

    Add the coloring.

    Take a little bit of food coloring and add as you like.

    Here, I’m adding the yellow that will be the center of the flower.

     

     

    After mixing the dough, place it on parchment paper and put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

    You can shape it before placing it in the freezer, but chilling it will make it easier to work with.

     

    Cut out Miffy and her flowers.

    Place the yellow-colored piece into the middle of the flower.

    Roll the rest of the shiratama into balls.

     

     

    Boil the shaped shiratama while on the baking sheet.

    Boil the round shiratama as well. When they float to the top, place them in cool water.

     

     

    Place the shaped shiratama on parchment paper or plastic wrap and let dry briefly before adding decoration.

     

     

    Mix black cocoa with a little water, and using the mixture, draw Miffy’s face.

     

     

     

    Place the flowers and shiratama balls inside the glass, follow up with your favorite fruits!

    (If using canned fruit, feel free to add the syrup as well!)

     

    I hope you enjoy decorating this colorful dish!
