1/1 Photo of Fried Bean Curd (Tofu) With Soy Sauce by Sy
This recipe is the one to try if you are new to eating Bean Curd or have not liked the texture of Bean Curd in the past. Bean Curd (the Japanese name is Tofu) is simply ground up soy beans, water and a coagulant added, put in a mold and then some of the water is pressed out. There are several types of Bean Curd from the Japanese, Chinese and Korean cuisines; Silken (soft), Medium/Regular (semi-soft) and Firm (hard) Tofu. Further, it is high in protein, inexpensive to make and blends in very well with other foods.
