Vegetarian Ham (Chinese New Year)


For Chinese New Year, this vegetarian ham is always welcomed.













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


2 ounces bean curd
3 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
½ each star anise
2 whole cloves
½ teaspoon peppercorns
Szechuan, crushed


Soak bean curd in water to cover about ½ hour until soft.

Mix together remaining ingredients, then marinate the softened bean curd sheets in this mixture about 2 hours.

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

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

Roll it up VERY tightly.

Place it on a single piece of cheesecloth or old sheet and roll it up with the cloth overhanging at both ends.

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

Place in a steamer and steam about 1 hour.

(Check to make sure the water does not boil away.)

Cool the roll and unwrap it. Cut into ¼ inch slices.

Serve cold.
