  • Steamed: Whether sliced into circles or strips, it's a versatile addition to numerous dishes.
  • Fried: Shape it, stuff it, and fry for easy and flavorful meals.
  • Baked: Its spongy texture allows it to soak up the flavors of broths and stews.
  • Dry-Baked: In the Japanese variation, it's lighter and fluffier, ideal for soups.
