1 14-oz package of soft (silken) tofu, drained & cut into cubes
1 large, ripe avocado, peeled and cut into slices
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 1/2 tbsp. soy paste
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. (or more, to taste) wasabi paste (or hot Chinese mustard)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup bonito shavings, or to taste (optional)
1. Place the cubed tofu on a serving plate.
2. Squeeze the juice from the lime over the avocado slices and mix well (this will prevent the avocado from turning brown). Arrange the avocado over the tofu.
3. Stir together the soy paste, sesame oil, sugar, and wasabi paste in a small bowl. Drizzle over the avocado & tofu. Garnish with bonito shavings and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately as an appetizer.
