Unicurd Black Soybean Silken Tofu And Tua Kwa

I love tofu especially those silken tofu that adds into soup or steamed with minced meat and etc. Tofu is such a hearty ingredient which can be used to create many different types of comfort food. And if you love tofu like what we do, here are some recipes for your read up. Besides that, in this post I will be sharing two recipes using silken and firm tofu (tau kwa) which might interests you. For those who residing overseas you can use any brand of the mentioned tofu that you can find in your local supermarkets.

Have you seen these new Unicurd  Black Soybean products on display at local supermarkets during your weekly grocery  replenishment? I happened to spot the Black Soybean Silken Tofu (SG$1.50) at one of the Fairprice outlet last week and it was recommended to me by one of the shoppers who tried comes with good feedback.

As you can see from the packaging it shows that these new products contains higher level of antioxidants which may lower risk of cancer as well as 25% more Calcium when compared to regular soybean products. Taste wise they quite similar to the normal tofu but it has a slight roasted flavour which resemble black sesame. We loves the silken tofu which can be served just on its own with some light soy sauce and spring onion as starter.

Organic Brown Rice Milk And Organic Soymilk Using Pebblio Soymilk Maker

Many of you might remember my posts on Homemade Organic Soymilk plus some related recipes using soymilk and okara (soybean resides) which I have shared last year. And with many people starting to make their own soymilk at home, there are now quite a few new brands of soymilk makers available in the market with similar functions too.

In this post, I would be sharing how to make Organic Soymilk and Brown Rice Milk using Pebblio Home Appliance (a new Tofu plus Soymilk Maker) in less than 20 minutes with a collection of about 2 litres of soymilk in one batch.


(Make: 1.8 Lires | Preparation: 6 Hours Soaking Beans  |  Cooking: 20 minutes)

200g (2 cup) Organic Soybean
1.8 Litres Water
Cane / Castor Sugar to taste
Pandan Leave, optional

1. Add pre-soaked soybeans (soak for at least 6 hours) into the Stainless Steel Container (within the filter).

2. Fill water into the container up to the maximum mark, scrap in the vanilla bean pop, Put on the lid and turn clockwise to tighten the latch of the cover.

Place the Tofu Box below the discharge tube. Press the RED button (start/stop) follow by the "SOY MILK" button to start the process.

4. Appliance will start heating up the water (starting for 28 degrees), blend and cook the "Soy Milk" and the whole process takes about 18 - 20 minutes to complete.

5. Once done, appliance will "BEEP" 3 times. Slowly turn RELEASE KNOB and soymilk will discharge into the Tofu Box or cup.

~ Other than using soybean alone, you could replaced the amount used to 100g each of soybean and black soybean.

~ Or using 150g Soybean plus 50g Peanut for a nutty flavour soymilk.

Above shows the internal view of the Filter after all the soymilk had be dispensed out from the container to the Tofu Box. From the photo you could also see that the Okara (soybean residues)  were collected inside the filter and you could keep them for making some Okara Butter Cake (recipe), Okara Omelette (recipe) and etc.

Above are a few types of the Organic Soybeans that I am using. You can use any brand of soybean despite of whether they are organic or not. Soybeans can be easily found in any local supermarkets or grocery stores under the dried beans sections.


Brown Rice Milk is a dairy free milk made from brown rice and just like soymilk and almond milk, rice milk is also safe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance. Furthermore rice milk is also low in fat which in terms makes it a good milk substitute for baking too. And recently many people also starting to make their own rice milk at home which is inexpensive and easier with the help of soymilk maker or blender.

(Make : 1.8 Litres | Preparation: 5 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes)

150g (1.5 cup) Naturel Brand Organic Brown Rice
1 Vanilla Bean Pod, optional
1.8 Litres Water
Sugar to taste

1. Rinse and wash the organic brown rice in a few rounds. Drained and add into the Stainless Steel Container (within the filter).

2. Fill water into the container up to the maximum mark, scrap in the vanilla bean pop, Put on the lid and turn clockwise to tighten the latch of the cover.

3. Place the Tofu Box below the discharge tube. Press the RED button (start/stop) follow by the "SOY MILK" button to start the process.

4. Appliance will start heating up the water (starting for 28 degrees), blend and cook the "Rice Milk" and the whole process takes about 18 - 20 minutes to complete.

5. Once done, appliance will "BEEP" 3 times. Slowly turn RELEASE KNOB and rice milk will discharge into the Tofu Box or cup.

~ If you do not have any vanilla pod, replace it with a few leaves of pandan leaves to cook together with the rice at steps 1 to enhance the taste of the rice milk.

~ For other rice milk flavour, you could reduce the amount of brown rice to 100g (1 cup) and add in 50g of Almond or Walnut for better taste.

NATUREL Organic Brown Rice
There are a few types of Organic Brown Rice available in the supermarkets for you to pick up. Above is what we usually have at home as my kid only prefers this brand. It is easy to cook with an hour of pre-soaked before cooking it using rice cooker (without adding extra amount of water). The texture of the cooked rice is fluffy, slight chewy and most important it does not have an unpleasant or rough taste when consumed.

After flashing out the soymilk/rice milk or etc to the Tofu Box, removed the cloth filter from the Stainless Steel Container and slow removed the filter cloth from for easy washing. Since the filter cloth is washable, you could re-used (on daily basis) it up to 6 months depending on it's wear and tear conditions.

And as for the Stainless Steel Container, you could use a big washing brush (similar to those used for washing baby milk bottle) to brush the blending blade and etc which is much easier to clean the residues in it.

This is not a paid/sponsored post. We just want to share our experience and tips in using this new Pebblio Home Appliance.

(upcoming recipe)

For the upcoming post I would be sharing on how to make Organic Tofu (豆腐) using Nigari Salt and Homemade Soymilk. So do stay tune for more updates soon.

Celebrate Luna New Year With Tai Sun Nuts and Goodies

With Chinese Luna New Year getting closer, I believe everyone is busying with a list of  "must buy" ingredients, goodies, tidbits and etc in order to prepare and feed the guests who are coming over for new year house visiting.  This year, thanks to Tai Sun and 20twentypr for the early New Year goodies which definitely come in handy for us due to it's wide selections of snacks for our guests.

The snacks are packed neatly inside this traditional bamboo basket which resemble those olden day (60s) food carrier or sort of like our modern picnic basket. And this unique basket is sure a keeper for me as my kid already hint for a picnic date with it soon on one of the weekend.

Macadamia Delight @ S$11.80 per jar (300g)
Rolled Pineapple Tarts @ S$10.80 per jar (380g)

Inside the bamboo basket, there are two tubs of Chinese New Year cookies from NOYA (under Tai Sun (Lim Kee) Food Industries too) such as Macadamia Delight and Rolled Pineapple Tarts which you can read more about them at my review post on NOYA products HERE.

Apart from the NOYA Chinese New Year cookies, there are also Roasted Cashew Nuts and Hei Bee Hiam Spring Rolls which are two of the popular snacks among guests.

On top of that, there are also some varieties of broad beans (satay and wasabi flavour) which are a great source of dietary fibre that helps to promote a healthy digestive system. For your information:- 100g of broad beans give you more fibre than eating 4 apples or 10 carrots.

Other than broad beans, Tai Sun also have other nuts products like roasted peanuts, cashew, almond and etc for your to select too. 

But if you are looking for something more towards nature flavour, perhaps Nature's Wonders which has a premium range of nuts and dried fruits might suits your preference. Their products comes with good source of dietary fibre as well as rich in protein. Furthermore Nature's Wonders products are naturally trans fat free with no added salt which makes it a healthy and high energy snack that helps you on the go!

So for this coming Chinese New Year if you are looking for some nuts or snacks to stock up for your guests perhaps you could take look at Tai Sun, NOYA or Nature's Wonders range in leading supermarkets too.
