1. Available Variants
Murginns Vegetable Tofu is available in a 200 gm pack.
A 200-gm block of Murginns Vegetable Tofu comes in a blue color plastic pack. The pack contains different information on the front including the nutrition label, pricing, weight and ingredients.
The ingredients used here include – soyabean, coagulant (citric acid), carrot, ginger, coriander, green chilly and salt.
When we opened the pack, we observed that the tofu had a pale white color and small pieces of carrots, ginger and chillies. It did not have a sticky texture nor did it feel like silken tofu.
On cutting the pieces of tofu, we found that it was not crumbly and did not fall apart. We noticed that the texture was not rubbery or hard. There was no difficulty while cutting the tofu as it was not hard and had an ideal smooth texture. When cooking the tofu, the texture remains unaffected. It did not turn chewy and hard.
When we tasted the Murginns Vegetable Tofu, the flavor of ginger is the most prominent. The fresh flavor of green chilly isn’t overpowering and you tend to enjoy the mild heat. We liked the fact it was not bland-tasting even when consumed as is. The fresh tasting carrot bits added a layer of crunchy texture to the tofu.
Seasoned perfectly with salt, Murginns Organic Vegetable Tofu can be had raw and tossed up in your salads. You can also cook the tofu using your favorite sauces since it takes on the flavor of the sauce beautifully.
