Tofu is now one of the favorites and must-have for all vegans, vegetarians and of course for all food lovers.
One of the main reasons for this soft superfood to gain popularity is its protein content, 1/2 cup of tofu offers almost 10g of protein, which plant-based eaters love and need. Tofu is a nutrient-dense food, which means it has fewer calories but offers more nutrients, makes it a perfect friend for weight-watchers. When it comes to cooking Tofu, marinating or adding some kind of flavor is important. Tofu is so versatile that it takes any flavor you add. In this recipe, we used Chinese inspired flavors but feel free to use any other cuisine flavors of your choice!
