Cold Tofu with Chestnuts in Apple Dashi
This light and elegant no-cook dish features custardy silken tofu in an ultra-refreshing broth. Here, Chang uses umami-packed shiro dashi, a bottled Japanese stock, as the savory base for the broth, stirring in Fuji apple juice for just the right amount of sweetness.
