Dried bean curd sticks are made from the skin which develops on top of vats of simmering soy milk. The skin is skimmed off, rolled into these protein-rich sticks and then dried. The bean curd or tofu sticks – also known as dried bean milk skin rolls, dried tofu skin rolls, yuba, fu zhu or tofu bamboo – need to be rehydrated before use, so soak them in hot water for at least 15 minutes until they are softer and supple. Dried bean curd sticks can be used in dishes as an alternative to meat, or in addition, for its great texture.
Dried bean curd sticks 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, the bean curd sticks absorb the flavours of whatever they’re cooked in – so add a few to flavoured broths and red-braised dishes. For everyday eating, rehydrate the bean curd sticks, chop them into chunks, let them cool and then add to salads for extra texture.
