Grated Koya Tofu and Shiitake Fried and Simmered

This is a stir-fried dish of grated Koyadofu (freeze-dried tofu) and Shiitake. If you grate the Koya-tofu, it becomes like Okara (soy pulp). Therefore, you can use a small amount of it at any time. Dried Shiitake, Koya-tofu, Kiriboshi-daikon (dried daikon strips), dried carrot strips, Kombu kelp, shaved dried bonito, and other dry foods team members play an important role in this dish. Dried carrots are more colorful than fresh carrots, so they are useful for coloring when combined with Edamame(boiled or steamed soybeans).
