Taho Recipe

Prep Time1 hr 20 mins
Servings: 5 people


  • 1 block silken tofu drain the liquid
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup Boba pearl
  • 10 cups water


  • Place the dark brown sugar and water in a saucepan and let them boil on low heat until there are no lumps. Cook on low heat for ten minutes. Let the syrup cool and transfer to a clean container. Store in the fridge to store.
  • Place the boba pearl in a large saucepan and add the water. Cook the pearls until it is transparent or, until the white opaque is not present. This process takes a long time to cook. Make sure to mix gently and scrape the bottom, since the pearls tend to stick on the pan.
  • Place five cups of water in your steamer. When ready, place the silken tofu and steam on high heat for twenty. Remove silken tofu and serve
  • When ready place the tofu in a small glass and add the syrup and the pearl balls. Add more syrup if needed.


I recommend using silken tofu to get that texture that we had in the Philippines.
