Puréed, creamy tofu and sesame paste dressing flavored with shoyu (soy sauce), mirin (sweet cooking wine), sugar, and salt is a classic favorite that is often used in Japan to dress lightly cooked vegetables. This recipe tweaks the preparation for an American kitchen: you crumble the tofu with a fork, then pair it with peanut butter to create a different taste and texture. Even people who sometimes shun tofu say this dressing is delightful.
