Fluffy Tofu and Chicken Tsukune

This Japanese comfort food combines two irresistible textures—fluffy and crunchy—in a healthy snack with the perfect pop of ginger.



1 cake of firm tofu 
100g ground chicken 
½ small grated onion
chopped green onion
2 oz chopped boiled green beans
1 egg
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp corn starch
2 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp chicken stock


4 tsp sake

3 tsp soy sauce

3 tsp sugar

2 tsp mirin

Put all ingredients together until the mixture gets a sticky consistency. Divide into equal portions, and grill until the surface gets crispy. 

For the sauce, mix all ingredients in a pot and cook until it nearly reaches a boil.

Dip the finished Tsukune into sauce, and enjoy!
