Making this Arare Tofu is quite easy.
You remove excess water from soft tofu.
Cook the tofu in sesame oil, and add flavor with soy sauce and sake.
I added tomato in addition to tofu, and I also used some sugar and salt to finish.
The original recipe was created by Mr. Tamori, who is a Japanese celebrity who hosted a popular daily show called “Waratte Iitomo” for many years.
In Japan it is customary to eat Soba noodles on December 31.
It’s supposed to be a good luck because the long noodles represent a long life and happiness.
We are having a quiet evening tonight.
Just me and my husband at home.
We will watch some TV.
Not sure if we can make it to 12:00…
