Make Your Own Tofu

leave a comment »

Last week we showed you how to make your own soy milk. If you like silken tofu you can make your own using your homemade soy milk, a bit of Epsom salt, and a few ramekins or other small containers. This will make silken tofu that you can further process into firm tofu by pressing out moisture.

Culinary blog Serious Eats provides a simple recipe for silken tofu: Dissolve ½ teaspoon of Epsom salt in 2 tablespoons of water and add this to chilled soy milk and distribute the mixture to your ramekins. Add the ramekins to a pan and pour enough water in the pan to almost reach the top of the ramekins, add a towel over the pan, and secure that towel with a lid. Simmer for 10 minutes until the tofu jiggles like a custard, then remove from the heat and allow tofu to set at room temperature for a few minutes.
