"Bean-residue" also known as lazy tofu, it is a kind of soy food in Enshi, central China’s Hubei province.

To make the dish, the soybeans are soaked in water and grounded into soya-bean milk, which was cooked with some water, together with chopped vegetables. Since it’s much easier to make bean-residue than to make bean curd, so it is nicknamed lazy tofu (lazy bean curd).

There are several advantages of bean-residue: first, it is rich in protein and vitamins; second, it has a delicate special taste; third, it suits the diet of Tujia ethnics, who eat rough maize as staple food.
