It was pretty easy and I didn't need any special equipment. I used organic soybeans, of course. First you have to make soy milk from the beans to make the tofu. I saved a pint of that just to see how it would come out. It's really good and better than store bought tofu. The soy milk is also excellent. Fresh makes a difference. Below are some photos of my tofu and soy milk. We don't eat a lot of soy but since we currently don't eat chicken, pork or beef we sometimes use it as our protein. I happen to like it and I certainly feel better about making it myself since I can control what goes into it.
This is the tofu that I scooped out of the cooking pot as soon as it was ready, before I pressed it. It was soft and almost decadently creamy. I added a splash of mirin and tamari and called it lunch!
Finished soy milk and pressed tofu. I made nearly a pound of tofu and about a pint of soymilk.
