Peanut tofu 100g

715

4,50 € tax incl.

Description : This 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, peanut tofu does not contain soy. That is why it can be kept at room temperature for up to one year. This peanut tofu is made traditionally in the city of Sasebo (Nagasaki) with wild kuzu, brown sugar from Kikai island and local peanuts. Freshly harvested, the peanuts are sun dried and then peeled by hand before being carefully grinded into a made-in-house peanut paste.

Flavor : This tofu has a subtle flavor of peanut and a smooth texture that reminds of pudding. 

Use : Peanut tofu can be used in a lot of dishes : as a starter with a salad and a trickle of dashi soy sauce, as a dessert with honey, kinako or cocoa powder, as well as for breakfast with fruits and nuts. This product suits both vegetarian and vegan diets perfectly.

Ingredients : Water (77,8%), peanut paste (9%), starch (8%), sugar (5%), salt (0,2%).

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.
