Yuba Arame salad

My husband has begged me to post this recipe, mainly because it’s not written down and he wants to make it for his lunches. It’s loaded with protien and all the goodness of sea vegetables, plus super-healthy sesame seeds.


About a pound of yuba, fresh and sliced into 1/2″ thick ribbons
1 or 2 green onions, sliced very thin into small round slices
A handful or two of dried arame
Sesame seeds, black and white
Sesame oil
Chili oil
White vinegar or rice wine vinegar
Soy sauce
Daikon radish, jullienned (optional)


1. Saute the yuba ribbons in a bit of sesame oil with green onions for about 3-5 minutes on high heat. Add soy sauce to taste and vinegar to taste. Set aside.

2. Boil water, soak the arame in the boiled water for about 10 minutes, until soft. Drain well and place in a large bowl.

3. Add the yuba mixture plus about 1/3 cup each of white and black sesame seeds. Mix well. Add soy sauce, a few drops of chili oil and vinegar as needed. Add daikon radish, if desired. Enjoy cold or at room temperature. Keeps for 1 week in the fridge.
