'Non Oil Vegan Katsu-Don' -- 4 Servings

p50.jpg

INGREDIENTS

4 servings rice

400g frozen firm tofu (or 2 pieces Koya tofu)
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup water
2 cups panko (breadcrumbs)

Katsu-Don sauce:
1 cup water
6 Tbls (90ml) soya sauce
4 Tbls (60ml) mirin
2 Tbls sugar
3 Tbls sake or white wine
salt to taste

1 onion
200g silken tofu
1 Tbls potato starch or corn starch (mix with same amount of water)
Spring onion to garnish


Directions:
1. Defrost the frozen tofu, drain and press. Slice the tofu into 5-7mm thick.
2. Toast the panko in a frying pan over mid heat until brown. It's easy to burn, so please be careful.
3. Mix the flour and water in a bowl. Dip the sliced tofu first into the flour/water mixture, then into the panko.
4. Bake the tofu for 10min in a 220 degree oven, flip over and bake for 5 more minutes.
5. Place all ingredients for Katsu-Don sauce in a pan, and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to medium and add sliced onion. Cover and cook until the onion is soft.
6. Mush the silken tofu by hand and add to the sauce pan. Add the potato starch and water mixture too and mix well. Bring it to a boil then turn off the heat. Place the rice, baked tofu, sauce and thinly sliced spring onions in a bowl. EAT!



Katsu Don is one of the most famous Japanese rice bowls. Traditionally Katsu is made of breaded deep-fried pork meat, and a thick sauce with egg is poured on top. I made this vegan Katsu from frozen tofu which has a harder texture and used silken tofu instead of the egg for the sauce. The normal way to cook the Katsu is deep-frying, but I chose to bake mine to make the healthiest Katsu Don in the world! This sauce is thick and salty and the best match with white rice!

Vegan Memo:
- If you want to deep fry the Katsu, you can do it without changing the recipe. But you don't need to toast the panko first.

I did it and it turned out perfectly! I gave up katsudon when I became Vegan, not even thinking it was possible to Veganize it. It's like I remember, thanks, thanks, many thanks.
