Tofu Stew

This is a rendition of Korean soondubu (tofu soup). The main ingredient is tofu and the consistency should be like a chunky soup or stew. This recipe is inspired by this Korean Soondubu Jigae recipe.



  • Soft or silken tofu

  • Dashi broth (kombu and shiitake base work just fine)

  • Garlic

  • Soy Sauce (Shoyu)

  • Vegetables of choice. Suggested: mushroom, spinach/kale, white radish (daikon) or baby bamboo shoots (takenoko). Adding 1-2 vegetables is best - keep it simple.

  • Optional: Egg


  1. Make the dashi broth and bring to a boil.

  2. Add garlic (minced or grated works).

  3. Add soft/silken tofu.

  4. Add soy sauce and vegetables.

  5. When the stew is almost cooked, you can crack an egg over the top. Alternatively, you can serve this with a boiled egg.
