Bean Curd Skin (Yuba) 湯葉, ゆば

The only ingredients your soymilk should have are soybeans and water. Commercial drinking soymilk is not suitable as it contains various solubilizers and flavourants etc.

  • 2 cups soy milk

  1. Pour soy milk into pan and bring to the threshold of boiling over medium heat. Small bubbles will begin to form around the edges of the soy milk.
  2. Turn off the heat and let a "skin" form on the top of the soy milk - this is your yuba.
  3. Remove skin with chopsticks and place in a dish.
  4. Let pot remain over low heat and repeat process, continuing to let skins form, removing each one to the dish.
  5. It should take about an hour to finish the pot of soymilk.
