Silken tofu

It is so easy to make silken tofu at home that I just don’t know what’s the reason for selling it in the supermarkets, and there are also so many applications to it. You can silken tofu to your soup, or make a salad dressing with it ala Aioli. You can also have Silken Tofu as a desert. Which is the way it is presented on the picture here. Enjoy!
