I tend to take a lesson from Japan when it comes to refreshing dishes, and have a particular fondness for chilled tofu with soy sauce, scallions and ginger — hiyayakko tofu. It happens to make a light, delicious vegetarian hors d'oeuvre that's visually stimulating to boot.

This is a great entrée, but also a delicious lunchtime or late-night snack: Toss the tofu on a brioche roll, add a dollop of mayo, and call it a day (or night, as you wish).

This mock eel is perfect for Meatless Monday. To impart a delicate, sealike flavor, the chefs mixed dried seaweed into the tofu mixture that formed the eel "flesh." That brininess is reinforced by the trip of nori that serves as the eel "skin." The sweet soy sauce glaze further echoes the real deal. Serve this as a snack or present it atop a big, deep bowl of hot rice for a vegan unagi donburi

And rather than fight off that instinct with a sausage, I turn to a Japanese chilled silken tofu dish called hiyayakko.
