Tofu

tofu

Also known as soybean curd, bean curd and bean cake, tofu is made from soybeans. The soybeans are soaked, cooked, ground and then mixed with a curdling agent. The resulting curds are drained and pressed into cakes, which are tofu. It is very mildly flavored with a taste similar to a very mild cheese. Because it is so mild, tofu easily absorbs the flavors of the herbs, spices and foods it is cooked with.

How to Store

Refrigerate tofu for no more than a week. It can be frozen up to 3 months, but freezing will change the texture, making it a little chewier.
