Step:

  1. Wrap tofu in paper towels, microwave for 1-2 minutes (no need for plastic wrap, at 500 W) in a heatproof container, and drain. You could speed up the draining process by putting a weight (a small plate or the like) on top of the tofu.

  2. Lightly roast the walnuts in a frying pan and finely chop. Although it's not written on the ingredients list, you could use cashew nuts as well.

  3. Chill the tofu from Step 1 and combine with the ☆ ingredients to make the shira-ae sauce.

  4. If using a persimmon as a container, slice off the top, and hollow the inside with a teaspoon.

  7. I used a hollowed persimmon on the profile photo, but with one persimmon, you can make about 3 servings in a small bowl (10 cm x 10 cm). This depends on how much you drain the tofu.
