  • Hi Reiko, thank you again for all that you create. I still check your blog daily, I am so excited when I see a new post. You are always inspiring me to create new things 🙂

    I was wondering, I tried to recreate these bagels and something is always a bit off, they are usually too hard. This is what I do, wondering if you have suggestions.
    2 cups rolled oats mixed with 1 tsp baking powder
    Then I knead in a half block of tofu (does it matter if its firm or soft?)
    This makes 3 bagels, I microwave each one individually for 1 minute 35 seconds.

    Any tips?

    Thank you 🙂

    • Hi William,

      Good to hear from you and thank you always for your kind words!

      For his recipe, I would recommend measuring tofu, oat, and sugar with a scale.
      Combine 150g of tofu, 130g of oats, 20 to 30g sugar (I usually use 30g of sugar), and one teaspoon of baking powder. I also add a pinch of salt.
      I use firm or extra firm tofu and rolled oats. Make sure that tofu is mashed well into smooth paste and mixed well with the rest of the ingredients (I use my hand; it works the best). When I form it into bagel-shapes they sometimes feel a bit dry. If that happens, I smooth them with a little water. I cook each at level 5 in my 1200W microwave oven. If your microwave has high power like mine, cook at a lower power level. Japanese microwaves are usually 500w to 600W. I usually cook mine for about one minute 45 seconds or so. They tend to be dense like the regular bagel, but they shouldn’t be hard. I hope this helps! 🙂
