Meat Substitues…Tofu

on February 29, 2012

Tofu has to be one of the most well known vegetarian meat substitutes. It is easily found in most supermarkets and health food stores because of it’s versatility.

It is a “bean curd” made by coagulating soy milk, pressing the curds into a block form.  Made in different textures from silken to extra firm to allow use in many diverse dishes.  Tofu can be used easily in smoothies and sauces, or as firm meat substitutes like mock chicken nuggets.  It will usually take on the flavors of the seasonings and food it is cooked with adding to the ease of  use in many dishes. 

Tofu is an easy way for vegetarians to get protein.  It is also high in iron, low in calories and low fat, making it a very popular choice.
