Hi all,

I have a package of yuba skins that I am not sure what to do with...they are slightly bigger than wonton wrappers, and I was thinking of stuffing them with something or other, but Im out of ideas. Any suggestions? The skins are pretty chewy...I have used them to make "ribs", but these are in sheets not rolled up.

help?

Thanks
Daphne

The longer you soak/cook them the softer they will get. I love to shred them and add to hot and sour soup. I'm guessing you have the refrigerated or frozen ones and not the dried ones which are actually brittle before soaking, but you should still soak them a bit to soften them more if you want to stuff them. I think they'd be lovely stuffed with sticky rice and whatever else you like and tied up into little purses and then steamed.

Can someone advise more on how to soak? I've only tried these once; used them in a stirfry after a 10 minute soak in marinade. I wasn't blown away--any tips?

My favorite use for them is as a "skin" coating on seitan cutlets, a la Unchicken or UnTurkey. Beyond Yum.

Don't try and use them as a baked egg roll style wrapper. O_O

Sometimes experimenting in the kitchen goes horribly horribly awry.
