Homemade Taho (Tau-Huay), Sweetened Tofu

It is one of my favorite childhood memories. 

I like it warm and sweet.  

Best of all it is healthy and vegan :)

For those who are having a difficult time liking and eating tofu, this might be a good solution to that problem.  Even picky children love this.  Just let them adjust the sweetness according to their taste.

only so as you know how the dessert is prepared.
It's been 2 decades now since I've last eaten Taho.  I am so ecstatic to find out that I can actually make my own Taho from home with 3 easy-to-find basic ingredients.
  • Organic extra soft or silken tofu (readily available)
  • brown sugar or raw honey
  • tapioca pearls
This is not only good as a dessert but a great breakfast for kids as well.  You would just have to adjust the degree of sweetness per kid's preference.  I have 2 entirely opposite little tongues at home so adding honey to my so healthy son does the trick.  While my girl and I get the brown sugar caramel.  YUM!!

Here's all you need to do to start eating healthier.
  1. Pour 4 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil. 
  2. Add in 1/2 cup uncooked tapioca pearls and cook for 40 minutes in medium heat.
  3. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar and mix well.  This gives the tapioca pearls a flavorful sweetness as we chew it.
  4. Turn off the heat and let the tapioca pearls cool at room temperature.  Set aside.
  5. In another pot, bring 1 cup of water to boil.  Then add in 1 cup of brown sugar.  Mix well and simmer till brown sugar blends well with water. Add a tsp of vanilla extract (optional). 
  6. Transfer the extra soft or silken tofu in a microwaveable glass, and microwave on high for a minute.
  7. Top with sweetened tapioca pearls and caramel syrup or raw honey.
  8. Serve warm.
I'd like to thank a good friend of mine, Michelle, who discovered about making tofu dessert due to our cravings.  Now I could enjoy my tofu at the start of my day.  Delicious!!
