<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!

1. If you add too much tomato and tofu, the sauce might be diluted. Feel free to adjust the taste by adding more soy sauce and mirin at the end.

2. It tastes even better on the next day when it’s chilled. Perfect for meal prepping and bento box.

<Storage time>

Keep it in an air-tight container in the fridge for 4 days.
