Steamed Homemade Egg Bean Curd with Filament Sticks

Have you tried making your own egg bean curd/tofu? Why not? It’s super easy, super fast, super delicious and most important of all it’s homemade. What you need is just 3 basic ingredients: plain soybean milk, eggs and cornstarch. I’ve never thought it would be this easy: mix, steam and eat! Haha This dish is perfect for working women. You can easily prepare the mixture the night before and just pop into the steamer the next day.

My first homemade egg bean curd. Yipee!

Some of the ingredients (clockwise from top right): soybean milk, eggs, spring onions and shredded filament sticks.

Begin by beating eggs lightly in a bowl.

Add Beaten Egg
Then pour beaten eggs into soybean milk. Add seasoning, mix well and then strain.

Pour mixture into a steaming platter, add shredded filament stick and steam over low heat for about 15 minutes.

Drizzle the cooked egg bean curd with spring onions, fried shallots and soy sauce. Serve hot with rice.

Easy right?
