How is Japanese "silken" tofu different from spongier Chinese-style tofu?
Long ago, the tofu (called "kinugoshi") of the emperor and royal court required special preparation by skilled Japanese artisans. The result was a delicately flavored tofu with a texture so smooth and creamy, it seemed to have been strained through silk.
Today, the texture of silken tofu is generally smoother and creamier, and its water content is slightly higher than dense, spongy tub tofu (or "momen" in Japanese). You can use extra firm silken tofu for stir-fry, but you can also blend the firm or soft versions of Mori-Nu Silken Tofu for creamy and delicious smoothies, shakes, desserts, dips, and sauces. Or crumble the firm tofu into eggless scrambles or pasta fillings.
What are the different textures of silken tofu used for?
- Extra Firm - used for stir-fry & meat substitutes
- Firm - works well for scrambles and desserts
- Soft - is great for dips and smoothies
This is a non-GMO product made in the USA. Packaged in aseptic, shelf-stable packaging. No refrigeration required until opened. Do not freeze in the packaging.
Each 12 oz. package contains about 4 servings of soft silken tofu.
For best freezing results:
- First remove Mori-Nu Silken Tofu from the package.
- Slice lengthwise in 1/4-inch-thick strips and cover with plastic wrap.
- Place in the freezer for a few days (at least 24 hours).
- Then you can thaw as needed like frozen cutlets. When you thaw these tofu "cutlets" in the microwave or in warm water, the ice will melt, leaving the tofu with a meat-like appearance.
- Marinate in any thick sauce (like teriyaki, sweet & sour, or barbecue sauce), then broil, bake, or even grill on the BBQ!
