Ingredients (for 2 servings)1 piece of deep-fried tofu
1 green onion
180 ml water
1/2 teaspoon Japanese soup stock
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sake
1 tablespoon mirin (sweet cooking rice wine)

Cut in half horizontally, then cut into bite-size pieces about 2 to 3 cm wide.
Cut the leeks diagonally and crack the egg into the container to break it up.
Combine water, Japanese soup stock, soy sauce, sake, mirin, and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil, then add fried tofu.
When it comes to a boil, add green onions.
When the leeks are cooked, pour in the beaten eggs.
When the eggs have set to a certain degree, turn off the heat. The trick is not to mix too much.
Top with rice in a bowl or rice bowl and serve!
