Yuba with Mushrooms and Cabbage

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. yuba

½ head of cabbage

150 g mushrooms

½ tsp grated ginger

½ tsp crushed garlic

2 tbsp miso garlic butter

1 tsp sesame seeds

1 tsp soy sauce

How to cook

2

Make some miso garlic butter

Make up a batch of miso garlic butter. You'll only need a small amount for this dish, but you can freeze the extra for later use.

Slice the yuba

Yuba comes in thin sheets, usually folded. Carefully unfold it and slice. I like it around a finger's width for this dish.

Chop cabbage

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.

Dice mushrooms

I like nice big chunks. I used king trumpets this time, but just about any mushroom should work fine. Shiitake would be great.

Fry the mushrooms in sesame oil

Heat some oil in a nonstick pan and brown the mushrooms. Mushrooms and sesame oil go great together.

I never ate such a thing, and especially did not cook it! It is necessary to experience!

I like the yuba a lot. It is tofu skin, leftover from the tofu making process. Do you know where to find it in your city? I can have the recipe translated to Polish as well if that helps.

This looks delicious! I'd never heard of yuba before. I will definitely be looking for this ingredient so I can try this recipe out!
