Homemade tofu

Tofu can be done in several ways … I’ve tried making it with nigari and lemon juice (real lemon … not liquid) and it’s about the same. Anyways I’m just going to post how to make it using nigari … which is a kind of salt full of magnesium … actually some people have it to add some into their diet.

  • 2 L of soy milk
  • 1 Tsp of nigari
  • 1 cup of water

How to make tofu using nigari
  1. Pour the soy milk into a big pot and heat
  2. Meanwhile warm some water on the kettle or in the microwave for 1 minute
  3. Pour the nigari into the glass and mix well
  4. When the milk is hot with some tiny bubbles on the side, but not boiling, add the nigari.
  5. Cover and let it work for 30 minutes
  6. Place a cotton cloth inside a colander
  7. After the nigari effect, pour the tofu through the cotton – colander getting rid of the liquid….
  8. Put some weight on top so that most of the liquid gets out and your tofu becomes firmer
  9. Place in a tupper filled with water and store or use 

I know it's not the prettiest tofu you've seen but it's exactly the same! And same price. Also I didn't have the proper box to make the tofu so I used what I had home :)
