Homemade Tofu from Soy Milk

Homemade Tofu from Soy Milk

Soy beans smell so wonderful.
Let's make some easy tofu from soy milk.


Soy milk (additive-free)
400 g
2 teaspoons (12 g)


1. Put the soy milk in a pot and heat until it's about 80℃.
2. Once warmed, turn off the heat and and slowly mix in the nigari a little at a time, being careful not to let it foam.
3. If you slowly mix in the nigari, there will be a lot of lumps. Once it gets to this state, let it sit for about 20 minutes.
4. Place some gauze on top of a strainer and strain the lumpy soy milk.
5. Squeeze the lumps over the gauze, put a light weight on top, and let sit for 20 minutes (to drain).
6. Let sit in cold water for 30 minutes (to remove the excess nigari).
7. ※This time, I used this brand of nigari.
