Steamed silken tofu {vegan – sans gluten}

recette tofu soyeux

Le tofu soyeux est un tofu pas très bien connu en France, on le voit mais on ne sait jamais trop comment l’utiliser en cuisine ! Alors autant vous dire que personnellement j’adore le tofu soyeux car on peut le manger de mille manières différentes, dans des bouillons, à la vapeur ou alors même en dessert. Il existe plusieurs sortes de tofu soyeux, du ferme au moins ferme, pour cette recette il vous faudra un tofu soyeux plutôt ferme que vous trouverez en épicerie japonaise ou asiatique, ceux vendus dans les magasins bio feront aussi l’affaire. This steamed silken tofu tofu recipe is just my favorite recipe with this tofu, I love this barely set texture and this mild milky taste which contrasts with the spicy sauce !

Silken tofu is pure comfort,

it melts in the mouth with barely a little resistance on the palate, in short, real happiness. This recipe does not require any special skills, just that of enjoying yourself as it should be ! For the recipe you will just need a steamer to reheat your tofu, if you don't have one you can still make this recipe in a cold version !

    I love tofu in all its forms, but MY FAVORITE, it’s THE Silken Tofu !!!
    I haven't tested it hot yet, good idea, I will do it quickly. Usually, I drain it and eat it as is with a Japanese sauce and candied ginger. It's Ecstasy …
