    I made this recipe and it didn't turn out. The homemade soymilk didn't thicken when I added the nigari and it tasted very bitter. Has anyone had any luck with this recipe?

    I bought my nigari from and it took them over a month to send it to me and I had to make several calls and emails to get a response from them. I recommend buying nigari from another online source.

    Thanks, Schoolgirl! I was wondering where to get it.

    I once tried a recipe where the soymilk was curdled with vinegar, and it didn't work. I must try this!

    Martha, your vegan fans thank you!
