Homemade Tofu [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces yellow soybeans
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Water, for the pot

Preparation

  1. Soak soybeans in enough water for 8 hours or overnight. Next day, drain the water completely and add the soybeans to a food processor. Pulse into a smooth, fine paste, adding enough water to achieve the right texture. Transfer this to a large pot. Add enough water to bring it to milk-like consistency.
  2. Heat the pot on low-medium flame. Once it starts boiling, switch the flame to low and let it boil for another 15-20 minutes. Keep stirring it frequently. Remove from the heat. Strain the soy milk through a cotton cloth.
  3. Transfer the soy milk to another pot and heat on low-medium flame. Once it starts boiling, add lemon juice and stir well. Let it sit for another 5-10 minutes. The milk will curdle. Remove from the heat and strain through cloth. The solid part is tofu. You can discard water.
  4. Now, wrap tofu in a cheesecloth. Keep the cloth wrapped tofu on a flat surface. Keep another plate above tofu and keep some heavy weight above that. You can keep mortar pestle or any heavy object. Let it sit for 30 minutes, then remove the weight from the tofu.
