Aburaage

Aburaage


Aburaage, also called Usuage, is thin deep fried tofu.  It has a mild soy flavor and a spongy texture and absorbs seasonings well.   You can open it up and make a pouch to use for Inarizushi or cut thinly to use for Miso soup,  and it is also a main ingredient for Kitsune Udon.  It often comes packaged as squares or rectangles.
