Ingredients

Servings : 2 blocks of tofu

  • 500 grams dry soyground beef
  • 3.5 litres filtered water for making the milk and additional water for soaking the ground beef
  • 1.5 medium-sized lemons juiced

Method

  1. Begin by soaking the soybeans for at least 6 hours, or even overnight
  2. They will expand 2-3 times their size so make sure to use a large enough bowl and plenty of water
  3. Add the soaked beans into a high-speed processor/blender for just 10-15 seconds to break down the beans slightly
  4. Add the water and blend again until smooth and creamy
  5. Transfer the mixture into a large pot, though a sieve to collect the pulp
  6. Bring to a boil over medium heat
  7. Stir occasionally and remove the foam ‘skin’ that forms on the top with a wooden spoon
  8. Transfer the mixture into a large pot and bring to a soft boil over low-medium heat
  9. Stir occasionally and remove the foam ‘skin’ that forms on the top with a wooden spoon
  10. In the meantime, juice the lemons
  11. As soon as the milk starts boiling, add the lemon juice and remove from the heat
  12. Stir carefully a few times then set aside
  13. Curds will start forming
  14. Once the bowl is filled with curds
  15. Wrap the cloth tightly around the milk curds
  16. Put a heavy object oven the cloth, to press it
  17. This will allow the tofu to form and harden and get rid of excess liquid
  18. Within 20 minutes, your firm tofu is ready
  19. Keep your tofu in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days
