Let’s make silken tofu from scratch and prepare the spicy Sichuanese dish, the famous mapo tofu.
So what is tofu? Tofu is made of soybeans and a natural coagulant such as gypsum or nigari. The coagulants work with the proteins of soybeans to form curds, just like cheese. Once the tofu is set, you can use it to make whatever dish you please.
We will be making Chinese mapo tofu. It’s a spicy dish from the Sichuan province of China and usually consists of soft tofu and a semi-spicy sauce made from fermented broad beans and chilli. We will be using lentils in our mapo tofu to substitute for the ground meat usually added.
In our Tofu Masterclass, you’ll learn how to:
🍲 Make silken tofu from scratch
🥕 Prepare a delicious plant-based version of mapo tofu using the classic Chinese douban chilli bean paste and our own freshly made tofu.
