Yuba, also known as 'tofu skin', is a bi-product of tofu making. It's similar to a noodle in texture. I like to cut it up into strips and cook it something like a stir-fry.
What you will need
5 oz. (140 g) yuba
½ head of cabbage
150 g mushrooms
½ tsp (1 g) grated ginger
½ tsp (1 g) crushed garlic
2 tbsp (34 g) miso garlic butter
1 tsp (6 g) sesame seeds
1 tsp (10 ml) soy sauce
How to cook
Yuba comes in thin sheets, usually folded. Carefully unfold it and slice. I like it around a finger's width for this dish.
Halve the cabbage and remove the core. Slice into strips. Don't slice it too thin. You want the texture to hold up after cooking.
I like nice big chunks. I used king trumpets this time, but just about any mushroom should work fine. Shiitake would be great.
Heat some oil in a nonstick pan and brown the mushrooms. Mushrooms and sesame oil go great together.
Stir in the garlic and ginger. I added another shot of oil to give the garlic and ginger paste something to cook in.
Dump in the cabbage.
Once the cabbage is beginning to brown, toss in the sliced yuba.
Stir in the miso butter and the sesame seeds.
Pour in some soy sauce to finish. Give it a little sautèe.
Miso Garlic Butter
It's great to have a batch of this stuff on hand. It keeps for a long time in the freezer and it goes well with all kinds of stuff.
