【Sweet Silken Tofu】
When I visited China last month, I bought a bag of glucono delta lactone, a neutral coagulant in making silken tofu. Recently, I received a soy milk maker; it is the latest model of Joyoun DJ13U-D08SG Soymilk Machine. I tried to make sweet silken tofu today and it turned out to be quite successful.
Cook time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4 servings
1) ½ cup dried soybeans (90g), 2 cups cold water;
2) 3.5 cups cold water;
3) 1/4-1/3 tsp glucono delta lactone powder, 1.5 tbsp cold boiled or bottled water;
4) 4×1 tbsp honey.
1: Rinse soybeans under cold water then soak with 2 cups of cold water overnight. The next day morning, rinse again and drain well.
2: Place soaked soy beans inside the Soy milk maker (Picture 1). Add 3.5 cups cold water.
3: Cover the lid, press “Select” button and select “Soaked bean” program. Then press “Start” button (Picture 2). It takes about 25 minutes to finish the program. Meanwhile, place glucono delta lactone (Picture 3) and 1.5 tbsp water in a big bowl, mix until it is completely dissolved (Picture 4). Set aside.
5: Pour filtered soy milk into the glucono delta lactone and water bowl (Picture 8). Let it stand for 25 minutes until tofu sets.
6: Divide silken tofu into 4 small bowls. Stir in 1 tbsp honey to each bowl before serving.
