This Week's Experiment: Tofu

Since I bought the soya milk gizmo we might as well use it for something other than making almond milk. Next on the list to check off...tofu.

It's a lot easier than I thought as it only requires three ingredients: soy beans, water, and some kind of coagulant, such as nigari (magnesium chloride), lemon, gypsum (calcium sulfate), or Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate).

I won't go into the details since there are a boat load of sites with explanations on the web.  The instructions for the tofu I made are here.

The result?

For a first try, it was ok but not the ideal match for the dish we had, mapo doufu, which is best with a more silky tofu.

Oh well, the experiment continues.
