Dried Tofu Knots
Dried tofu knots are popular in Chinese cuisine and can be used in dishes as a gluten-free, vegetarian alternative with great texture. Dried tofu knots, which are made from soy beans, need to be rehydrated before cooking, so soak them in hot water for at least 15 minutes until they are softer and supple.
Dried tofu knots are nutrient-rich – perfect for vegan dishes. They also have the delicious chewiness associated with Chinese ingredients such as shiitake mushrooms, pork fat and tangyuan. Much like tofu, these knots absorb the flavours of whatever they’re cooked in – so add a few to flavoured broths and red-braised dishes.
