How to Make Tofu

Soy is a very important product in the Chinese kitchen. It is used in many ways, one of them is the Bean Curd, or as we also know it- Tofu. Like many other inventions, the Tofu was invented by accident, when lord Liu An, of the early Han dynasty was trying to invent an elixir of life. His scholars discovered that by mixing soymilk with a mineral called gypsum, they could create a soft substance, what we know today as Tofu.
