Hi Sue,

I've never seen such a recipe, and my gut feeling is that you could not make tofu from rice milk since tofu is the coagulated protein of soy milk. Rice milk is very low in protein, so there'd be very little to coagulate and form into curds.

If you're in the experimenting mood, give it a try. Make rice milk from cooked rice:

* 4 cups hot water
* 1 cup cooked brown rice


Place rice and water in a blender until smooth. Let the milk set for about 30 minutes, then strain thru a cheesecloth to filter out the sediment. This makes about 4 - 4 1/2 cups.

Then, reheat the milk to around 180°, add about 1 Tbsp. epsom salts dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water.

Whatever coagulates into curds would be your rice tofu. Pour thru a cheesecloth lined sieve, and press the curds w/ a weight to form into a block.
