Black sesame tofu 100g


4,50 € tax incl.

Description : Sesame tofu is a speciality of Nagasaki, brought by buddhist monks in the 17th century, as well as zen vegetarian cuisine. Although it is called tofu, the sesame tofu does not contain soy. That is why it can be kept at room temperature for up to one year. For 3 generations, this sesame tofu is made traditionally in the city of Sasebo (Nagasaki) with wild kuzu, brown sugar from Kikai island and sesame seeds. The sesame seeds are roasted and reduced into a paste by the producer.

Flavor : A sweet, roasted flavor with peanut notes. A smooth texture that reminds of pudding. 

Use : Black sesame tofu can be enjoyed as it is, as a starter sprinkled with shiso flakes or sliced like a vegetarian sashimi, with a little bit of oil and wasabi. You can also enjoy it sweet, sprinkled with kinako, matcha, coconut flakes or with honey. This product suits both vegetarian and vegan diets perfectly.

Founded in 1952 in the city of Sasebo by the grandparents of the current president, the Houmoto company has been producing sesame tofu for three generations, a specialty that developed in Nagasaki, after being brought by Buddhist monks in the 17th century. The company has developed its own method of roasting the sesame seeds needed to make its tofu to satisfy the demanding palate of the people of Nagasaki and maintain the quality of its products. In addition, these are prepared to order, in order to guarantee their freshness.
