    Tofu (豆腐) or bean curd is a food made by coagulating soy milk and then passing the resulting curds into soft white blocks.  There are many different varieties of tofu.  Tofu has a subtle flavor and can be used in savory and sweet dishes.  There are silken (soft), medium, medium-firm, and firm tofu.

    Silken/soft: Miso soup, Cold Tofu, Mapo Tofu, etc

    Medium to Medium-Firm: Hot pot.

    Firm: Stir fried dishes.

    What To Do with Leftover Tofu

    If you don’t use an entire block of tofu, place the leftover tofu in a airtight container, soak in cold water, and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.  Exchange the water everyday.
