When I first got the idea to make tofu I was shocked at the quantity of ingredients required.
After all, it’s not really tofu.
But then I remembered that tofu is made from a bean.
I had always loved bean tofu and I wondered how it could be made from the same bean.
Then, I read that tofu can be made using soy sauce.
I was intrigued, so I started to research how soy sauce was made, and came across the great website Soy Sauce and Fungi, a wonderful blog that does an amazing job of showing you all of the different ways you can make soy sauces.
I decided to take this as a perfect opportunity to get the recipe for soy sauce, and, by the time I was done I was happy with the result.
It turned out to be a little tricky, but I was able to get it down and running in just a couple of days.
So, if you’re interested in getting started, here are the steps.
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Start by sauteing the garlic in the olive oil for 10 minutes until it starts to turn translucent.
Step 2 – Add the soy sauce to the pan and stir until the soy sauces is thickened.
Step 3 – Add more soy sauce and stir again until the sauce is thick enough to coat the tofu.
I used my finger to stir the sauce, then pressed the tofu with a spatula and baked for about 15 minutes.
Step 4 – Remove from the oven and drain on paper towels.
Step 5 – Add tofu back to the oven for about a minute or so to cook, then stir.
Step 6 – When the tofu is cooked, take it out of the oven, and turn it out onto a plate.
It should be very tender and moist.
It’s important that you cook the tofu in a small pan with a lid so that you don’t get too much oil on the surface.
Once the tofu has cooled, it should be just as good as it was in the oven.
It can be served with steamed rice or topped with sesame oil.
If you don, you can also make a thick soy sauce from the tofu and stir in the sauce to thicken it.
