Sweet and Spicy Crispy Tofu

If you haven’t tried tofu and don’t know where to start, start with this recipe (see below)! I can pretty much guarantee you’ll love it, it’s super easy to make and incredibly tasty. 

Before you get cooking, here are 3 fun facts about tofu that you might not have known about:

  1. It is an amazing source of plant based protein and other nutrients. In about 1/4 of a typical tofu package you are getting 15 grams of protein, little saturated fat, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, calcium and iron! 

  2. It easily takes on the flavours you cook with. Think of tofu as a sponge, cook it with some of your favourite herbs, spices, and sauces and voila a delicious and nutritious meal coming your way.

  3. Soy contains phytoestrogens known as isoflavones, which have a similar structure to the female hormone estrogen. For this reason, increased soy and tofu consumption is encouraged in women’s diets as they enter menopause.
