Tofu with Soy-Butter Corn

The combination of flavors in this recipe—sweet late-season corn, soy, and butter—is not unusual. As Hiroko Shimbo writes in her book Hiroko’s American Kitchen, corn and butter are a common pair in Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, where both are produced. Here the three come together, along with pan-fried tofu, scallions, mirin, and sesame oil, to make an ultra-flavorful, just-rich-enough vegetarian main. Serve it over rice, a chewy grain like farro or wheat berries, or arugula dressed with rice vinegar and more sesame oil. A crispy fried egg would also be welcome.
