Theme: Homemade Chinese Takeaway Food
Dish: Chinese Tofu Skin Noodles (Fu Pei Guen)

Today’s homemade Chinese takeout dish is made with tofu skin aka Yuba and bok choy. It’s called Fu pei guen. Recipe is from Serious Eats.

Yuba Noodles with Bok Choy

Tofu Skin doesn’t really sound very exciting or appetizing, it even tastes bland when rehydrated but once it’s cooked with some soy sauce and sesame oil, it tastes amazing. Interestingly I had a package of dried tofu skin in the pantry, I don’t even remember where I bought it from. I’m very glad that I was finally able to use that.

This is a very easy to make dish. Once you have the dried tofu skin rehydrated and cooked, it takes just a few minutes to put together. Bok choy and scallions are added to give some color to the dish. It can be eaten just as is or with some noodles.

  1. Never tried these skins..not a great fan of Indian tofu..but have always liked the Japanese one…so probably these skins might appeal.
