Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, Low Carb, Sugar-Free


2 ounces bean curd
3 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari
2 tablespoons water
½ tablespoon star anise
2 each cloves


Soak the bean curd in water for about ½ hour until soft.

Mix together the remaining ingredients, and marinate the bean curd in this mixture for about 2 hours.

Select the largest and smoothest sheet and lay it on a flat surface.

Place the remaining sheets on top of it evenly, so that when rolled up it will form a cylinder of regular dimensions.

Roll it up VERY tightly.

Place it on a single piece of cheese-cloth or old sheet and roll it up, with the cloth overlapping both at both ends.

Tie the bundle at both ends like a toy firecracker at the two points where the bean curd ends.

Steam the roll for about 1 hour. Cool the roll and unwrap it.

Slice the roll into ¼ inch slices and serve cold.
