  • Place the tofu in the freezer overnight. This allows water crystals to form inside the tofu to break it down, allowing the miso marinade to penetrate it.
  • Remove the tofu from the freezer and squeeze gently in a clean cloth to remove all excess water.
  • Mix the white miso paste, mirin and sugar to make a marinade and gently heat to dissolve the sugar.
  • Dice the tofu into 2cm cubes and place in a bowl with the marinade. Leave to marinade for 4 hours.
  • Grill the tofu on hot grill pan until golden and lightly charred all over.
  • To serve, place the hot rice mixed with the quinoa in a serving bowl and arrange the vegetables and seaweed attractively around.
  • Place the grilled tofu in the centre, sprinkle over the black sesame seeds, drizzle over the dressing and serve scattered with the shiso leaves.
