What is Tofu: It’s What’s for Vegan Dinner

What is Tofu

Tofu for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I discovered where I can buy a bulk amount of Tofu at Costco and here on Kauai, it’s the best bargain.  Problem is, how does a family of 2 eat it all before the expiration date.

I’ve been making it scrambled with Tumeric to resemble scrambled eggs but wondered what else I could do with it without the need to have tons of unknown ingredients on hand.

What is tofu?

Tofu is known as bean curd is a food cultivated by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks. It is a component in East Asian and Southeast Asian cuisines.[1] It can be soft, firm, or extra firm and has a subtle flavor and can be used in savory and sweet dishes. It is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish.

Tofu has a low-calorie count and relatively large amounts of protein. It is high in iron, and it can have a high calcium or magnesium content, depending on the coagulants used in manufacturing (wikipedia)

I am a marketer and entrepreneur. I have avoided meat for decades, but became vegan, in 2014, on the advice of my cardiologist. The purpose of this site is not to convince everyone to become strictly vegan, but to encourage people that they are best advised to eat as much plant based food as possible and to provide information, including recipes and other articles, for both vegans and non-vegans alike.
