Easy and Rich Homemade Tofu with Heavy Cream

Easy and Rich Homemade Tofu with Heavy Cream

You don't need any special equipment for this recipe!
You can easily make homemade tofu in a microwave.
The richness from the heavy cream makes it so addictive.

Ingredients: A manageable amount (Makes 1 bowlful)

Additive-free soy milk
1 liter (1000 ml)
Nigari (liquid)
1 scant tablespoon
Heavy cream
1 pack (200 ml)


1. Make sure to use additive-free soy milk. I used cream substitute to make mine.
2. Put all the ingredients into a heatproof bowl and mix them well.
3. Microwave for 3 minutes at 500W. When done, microwave for another minute, check how it is, then microwave for a minute again. Repeat until you've microwaved it for 9 minutes in total. The tofu will become firm bottom up.
4. When the tofu has become hard enough for a spoon placed on the surface not to sink in, let it sit to cool down. There should ideally be a little liquid left on the surface and it should be slightly softer on the bottom.
5. The tofu will become nice and jiggly as it cools down.
6. If you like your tofu to be soft, chill in the fridge for only a brief time. If you like it firm, chill it quite well before serving.
7. Dish it up and enjoy with your favorite sauce and toppings.
