Stir-Fried Yuba with Shiitake Mushrooms

31 Oct

The yuba I made was quite tasty by itself, but I wanted to see if I could make a dish involving it that would also be tasty. This stir-fry turned out OK, but I think I still prefer plain homemade yuba, or Hodo Soy’s spicy sesame yuba “salad”. I had fun making it though!


  • 1 package of fresh Yuba
  • 1 sliver of ginger, peeled
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • shake of hot pepper flakes
  • shiitake mushrooms (optional)
  • vegetable oil
  • sesame oil


  1. Cut the Yuba into strips or pieces. Experiment to find a shape and size you like. Now saute ginger, garlic, and hot pepper flakes in vegetable oil.
  2. Dump in the tofu skin. Stir fry over high heat for 5-10 minutes, adding water as necessary. Tofu skin wants a LOT of salt. So don’t hold back!
  3. Just before serving, add a good dollop of sesame oil.
