I know many people that have said they have never tried tofu and never will. It definitely has a bad rep but it’s time we give it a bit of a fighting chance. This dish is packed with protein and a great option for breakfast, lunch or dinner. ⠀
Tofu is made from soybeans that have been soaked, boiled, strained and then pressed. The firmness of the tofu depends on how much it has been pressed. Pressing is a simple process, as long as you have something heavy to place on top (think: cast iron pan, textbooks or cookbooks). ⠀
A 3/4 cup (150 g) serving of tofu is considered a complete protein (12 g), low in saturated fat and contains nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc.⠀
Contrary to popular belief, consuming soy-based meat alternatives can be beneficial for heart health, menopause and may contribute to breast cancer prevention.
