Korean Silken Tofu

This is the easiest Korean banchan (side dish) recipe you’ll ever make! It’s the perfect quick and easy side dish to put together on a busy or lazy weeknight.

The tofu is served cold so all you need to do is assemble the sauce and pour it on top. There are so many tofu variations in Korean cooking and this is one of my favorites!
