Dried tofu skin, dried bean curd, or yuba is made by boiling soy milk in a large, shallow pan and collecting the film that forms on the surface. These tofu skins are then hung to sun-dry and the resulting product is dried yuba. Tofu skin is prized for its unique rubbery texture and ability to soak up flavors. It is often eaten by itself or used as a wrap for other foods such as dim sum.
Uses: Simmer tofu skin in water or flavorful broth for 15 minutes or until tender.
