How to make your own tofu at home

I got really into making my own tofu this year. It started with my purchase of a soy milk machine, a relatively common small appliance in China, Korea, etc. I only wanted to make my own soy milk, but eventually i realized that soy milk is basically the only ingredient in tofu, so why not try it? This process does require some specialized equipment, but I want to stress that it's NOT difficult!

This recipe uses roughly 7oz of soybeans and will yield you a block of tofu that is roughly 7oz in weight, depending on how much water you strain out of it.

Tools needed


Step 1: Preparing soy milk

Using a SoyaJoy G5

Using a blender

Step 2: Coagulation

Step 3: Straining and pressing the bean curd
