Hiyayakko (冷奴,) is a tasty Japanese dish based on tofu garnished with various condiments. This dish, perfect as an aperitif as an accompaniment to sake, beer or cocktail, was consumed by samurai servants during the Edo period. Today it is possible to find it in restaurants and izakaya. It is mainly eaten cold - toppings are at your choice (for example you can choose between shiso, corn or cucumber leaves), I propose the classic recipe - while during the winter it is possible to find it on the menu seasoned with hot broth. INGREDIENTS -velvety and solid tofu - 1 piece of fresh ginger - 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce - 1 finely chopped spring onion (only the green part) - 1 tablespoon of katsuobushi
