Nutritional Tofu

Tofu is one of my favorite viands. Well, it is known for its extraordinary nutritional benefits, as well as its versatility. Below is an image of tofu viand I have ordered at my favorite restaurant in Japan.

Soya curd, as known by some, is made by curdling soya milk with a coagulant. There are three types of tofu. The firm tofu is dense and can be cubed and stir-fried, grilled, scrambled, pickled, smoked, baked, barbecued or served in soups. This tofu is high in protein fats and calcium. The soft tofu is more suited for recipes in which tofu needs to be blended. Lastly, the silken tofu has a creamy structure and is also used in blended dishes.
