Learn to cook with Tofu

Tofu or soya cheese is an ideal substitute for the cream, mayonnaise and cheese; it is low in fat and contains no cholesterol.

Its delicate flavor makes it perfect to use in salty or sweet dishes, as you will see in the following recipes. While in Japan and China, tofu is a popular ingredient that has been used for over two centuries, in Western culture, it is relatively new in the kitchen.

Wow! I have been cooking with tofu for years and I have never thought to make a marinade for it. What a great idea! I'm definitely going to try that from now on, and with other ingredients as well. I used to make a lot of stir fries and the soy sauce tasted super great on tofu, but I've never tried it with anything sweet!

people are like scared of this ingredient and I dunno why since it is very good, the tateis nice and neutral and you can combine it even with sweet...

people should love it instead of avoiding it!

Tofu is a very versatile ingredient since you can add it to any dish and it can replace meat and other animal products, and more! I think we should consume more tofu and maybe our health will be improved in a very positive way since this is a healthy and amazing product.
