What the milk tofu? I know what you all may be thinking... what in the world is milk tofu? Literally, it's tofu made out of milk. This is a great alternative to soybean tofu if any of you are allergic or even if you just want to try something new! This recipe requires minimal ingredients, it's super easy to make and also tastes good! It tastes a bit creamy like mozzarella cheese and goes great on top of salads! Let's get started.
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 tsp of vinegar
- a pinch of salt
** I used 2 cups of milk for my milk tofu and thus increasing the amount for the other ingredients accordingly!
1.) Heat your pan.
2.) Pour in your milk and let it come to slow simmer/boil.
3.) Once it starts to boil, start stirring the milk in ONE DIRECTION! This is crucial that you stir in the same direction whether its clockwise or counter clock wise.
4.) Once it's boiling and you start stirring, immediately put in your vinegar and pinch of salt.
5.) Continue to stir in one direction and you'll start to see lumps and chunks (hehe).
6.) Once it starts to get a bit watery, take your pot off the stove.
7.) Have a thin cloth and a bowl/container ready for you to drain out the water and save the lumps (demonstrated below).
8.) Squeeze all the liquid out of the cloth and form your tofu into a ball or square.
See how easy that was? Now, if you do not have a cloth you can also use a strainer (make sure the holes are small enough to catch the lumps) to drain the liquid out. You can just shape your tofu with a spoon or with your hands once you're done draining it.
You can also crumble it on top of some salad, slice it on top, or even just eat it with some fruits. It tastes so yummy!
I hope you all enjoyed and make sure to give this recipe a try... I mean why not, right?!
