Guess What's in This...



Now, here’s the answer that you’ve been waiting for…. ; )

I think I can call this a gratin, and the ingredients were:
Yamaimo (Japanese yam), grated,
Silken tofu
Processed cheese (sliced) and cheddar cheese (grated)
---
I mixed the grated yam and silken tofu, seasoned with dashi stock and soy sauce, then sprinkled cheese on top and baked in toaster oven.

The taste needed some improvement, but I think it looks OK in the photo.
Don't you think so?

Wow! I posted only 1 pic and got 10 comments! :D Thanks !

> CrazyC --- You got cheese right!

> gleek --- Yep, gratin. But no potatoes.

> marion --- Great! Yes, I used cheddar cheese!! BTW, what’s crozets?

> OsloFoodie --- Mmmmm… no persimmon, no rice. But the combination would be good, I think.

> keona --- It does look starchy, doesn’t it? But it’s not rice.

> lance --- Mochi is a good guess! I’m thinking about trying it next time, this time I didn’t use it.

> milgwimper --- Oh, grits! Good idea! I didn’t think about that this time but you gave me a hint for my another experiment.

> fish fish --- Yep yep. Very hot. I burned my tongue.

> foodpocket --- Mmmmm, it’s really a good guess!

Thanks everyone for guessing! I’ll post the answer after I take a bath. (I just got back from Izakaya work.)

about the crozets, it's a kind of pasta small and square, from the region of Savoie (in my dear country, france). you can see what they look like here http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.oldcook.com/i/crozets.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.oldcook.com/histoire_pates.htm&h=137&w=200&sz=8&tbnid=HVJHwn7R0ywJ:&tbnh=67&tbnw=98&start=52&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dcrozets%26start%3D40%26hl%3Dfr%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN

Hi marion,
You won my big *HUG* ; )
Thanks for the crozets information. I've never seen square pasta like that. Must be nice in gratin.
