Iced Fuwa Fuwa Figs

So simple, so delicious, this is a truly refreshing summer recipe for the hottest days and the balmiest evenings. Inspired by the fuwa-fuwa (soft soft) tofu I enjoyed in Japan, the crisp mint with the mellow tofu pair perfectly with the sweetness of the ripe figs.


Serves 2 (or 4 as a starter)

Takes 5 minutes (5 prep)


100g silken tofu

2 ice cubes

1 handful of mint

4 ripe figs


Blend the tofu with the ice cubes and a pinch of salt until smooth. Add the mint and pulse blend until it is chopped and well mixed in.


Cut off the top of the figs and slice into quarters - leaving the base connected. Gently pull the top apart and place a tablespoon of the iced tofu into the cross.


Serve straight away.
