In Japan, tofu products are well eaten as well as tofu; for example, abra-age, atsu-age, ganmodoki, koya-dofu and okara.
Abura-age is thin sliced fried tofu, put in miso soup or stir fry. It’s also used for sushi called “Inari-zushi” (rice stuffed in it).
Atsu-age is fried thick tofu.
Ganmodoki is made from tofu and vegetables puree such as Japanese yam, burdock, carrots. Often used in oden and nimono (boiled with seasoning).
Koya-dofu is freeze-dried tofu, usually reconstituted in kelp soup. The texture is spongy.
Okara is soy pulp which is left over after the production of tofu and soy milk. It’s often used in diet food.
