Here’s a delicious Japanese silken tofu recipe with radish and basil to add more incredible favours and textures to such a simple dish.

This radish-basil partnership provides some fresh complexity with extra spice and crunch. If you’ve ever wondered what to do with silken tofu, don’t skip over this one!

You may already know that hiyayakko is a Japanese chilled tofu dish usually served in the summertime. Radishes and basil are also very summery. So we put them together – to great effect, in our humble opinion!

What we love about this Japanese silken tofu recipe

We use silken tofu for the hiyayakko tofu because it has a very creamy and soft texture. The idea is not to mask it but complement it with some contrasting flavour and zing.
