Cooking instructions


Step 1: Add 6 eggs to a mixing bowl and beat thoroughly. Once the eggs are beaten, slowly add 300ml of soy milk whilst continually mixing, then add 1/8 teaspoon of salt to the bowl and whisk everything together.

Step 2: Pour the mixture through a strainer, and into another bowl to remove any lumps and thick bits.

Step 3: Pour the mixture into a dish suitable for steaming, and then steam on a very low heat for 25 minutes. You might need to steam for a little longer or less depending on the depth of the dish you are using. If you steam the tofu on too a high heat or for too long, you will end up with lots of air holes, and a dryer texture.

Step 4: Allow the tofu to cool to room temperature before cutting it up into cubes or cylinders and using it. We placed our dish in the fridge to speed up the cooling process. Take care when removing the tofu from the container so that it doesn’t break up. Your tofu should now be ready to use!
