World Tofu Day – A Day to Celebrate the deliciousness of Tofu!

On July 26th, we celebrate World Tofu Day! A day to enjoy the deliciousness of tofu, and to learn a little bit more about this amazing food. If you love tofu, or are curious about it, read on to learn all about this versatile dish.

What is Tofu?

Tofu is a food made from soybeans. The soybeans are soaked in water and then ground into a paste. The paste is then mixed with Nigari, which is a type of salt, and the mixture is placed into molds. The molds are then pressed, which removes the water from the tofu and gives it its firm texture. There are different types of tofu, depending on how much water has been removed. Tofu can be soft, medium, or firm. It can also be eaten fresh or cooked.

How Many Kinds of Tofu Are There?

There are many different types of tofu available on the market today. Here are some of the most popular types of tofu:

  • Firm Tofu: Firm tofu has a higher water content than other types of tofu and has a softer texture. It can be used in soups and stir-fries.
  • Soft Tofu: Soft tofu has a lower water content than firm tofu and has a custard-like texture. It is often used as a substitute for eggs or dairy products.
  • Silken Tofu: Silken tofu has an even lower water content than soft tofu and has a very smooth texture. It is often used in desserts or as a thickener for sauces.
  • Stuffed Tofu: Stuffed tofu is made by combining different ingredients such as vegetables, meats, or seafood inside the tofu before it is cooked.
  • Dried Tofu: Dried tofu is made by removing all the water from regular tofu. It has a chewy texture and can be used as a snack or in soups.

If you love tofu or want to try it for the first time, head to your nearest Asian grocery store or make it at home. And don’t forget to celebrate World Tofu Day on July 26th!
