Tofu is a healthy choice of food that is affordable and abundant. Tofu can now be found in your local supermarkets throughout the year and it's one of the most versatile foods.It is high in protein and calcium and well known for its ability to absorb new flavors through spices and marinades. Due to its chameleon-like qualities and nutritional value , tofu is a staple of Asian cuisines for hundreds of years, has recently become popular in Western vegetarian cooking.I understand these days alots of western try to add tofu into their diet.I always try to stock up couple of boxes silken tofu at home.One of the tofu dish that I likes is steamed tofu with chicken and shrimp.
