Also known as soybean curd, tofu is a soft, cheese-like ingredient made from soy milk which is low in saturated fat, contains no cholesterol, low in sodium and an excellent substitute for many dairy products, especially useful for those with a lactose intolerance.

Homemade Tofu Recipe

Soak raw soybeans until they're fully plumped up for 6-8 hours, place them in a blender in small batches with twice their volume of water and process until they're well mashed but not too smooth then strain. Bring the strained liquid to the boil in a large saucepan and continue to boil rapidly for 3-5 minutes, then add either 5 drops vegetable rennet OR 1 tablespoon Epsom salts OR 3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice. Turn off the heat and leave for several hours. Strain the curdled material onto a piece of cheesecloth, wrap securely, place in a colander in the sink or a large bowl and top with a heavy weight. Leave for several hours.
