Place ingredients (first five listed) into TMX bowl and blitz on Speed 5 for 10 seconds. Scrape out and store in a sealed container in fridge (use within a week).
Dissolve dashi powder into hot water or prepare other type of concentrated stock.
Cut block of konnyaku into 1cm lengths and place into TMX bowl. 'Dry' sautée konnyaku on 100C, Speed Soft, Reverse for 3 minutes or until you can hear the konnyaku making a squeaky sound. This is done to remove as much moisture as possible from the konnyaku.
Add sesame oil and carrots, and sautée for a further one minute on same setting.
Add half stock, soy and mirin to the konnyaku and carrots and cook on same setting for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, check on how much liquid remains in the bowl. If majority has reduced, add a little more stock and continue to cook on same setting for two more minutes.
Transfer konnyaku and carrots to a container with a lid with any remaining liquid and allow to cool covered.
When cooled, drain any liquid and mix 1/2 cup of the creamy tofu sauce through the konnyaku and carrots.
Serve in small bowls with a sprinkling of toasted white sesame seeds.
Braised Konnyaku & Carrots with Creamy Tofu
Note regarding stock: Dashi usually refers to the stock made with bonito so it’s not suitable for vegans. However, you can get hold of dashi that is kombu (seaweed) based to make this meal entirely vegan. If you cannot get hold of dashi, perhaps try one teaspoon of Thermomix Stock Concentrate in the same amount of water. The key is to ensure you use liquid stock that is highly concentrated in flavour.
