There are those out there who are not adventurous eaters.
Perhaps a meat and potatoes family. Well, its time to start thinking outside the box and try some alternatives. How about some Asian food, and I don’t mean the greasy Chinese food down the street. I mean home cooked Asian food that has ingredients in it that you trust and know are good for you.

A good place to start is Tofu. Take a look at Nasoya Tofu U. Here they teach simple recipes and techniques for using tofu in both everyday dishes as well as dishes with an Asian flair. A good example of an everyday use of Tofu is the stuffed manicotti where instead of ricotta cheese you can use soft tofu. I can honestly say next time we go food shopping we will be trying this. Tofu is a misunderstood ingredient. Tofu is a food made of soy beans, which when cooked absorbs the flavor of whatever else it is cooked with. If making garlic stir fry it will accent and accentuate the garlic instead of adding a flavor to the bunch.

In general, there are two types of tofu- firm and soft. And guess what? Firm is of a thicker texture then soft, and is mostly used as a meat substitute, the soft can be used as a thickener, or as we saw before, a ricotta cheese substitute. 🙂

These very broad terms are pretty much what kind of tofu you can find in your average supermarket, but if you are looking for a tofu to act as more of a meat substitute take a look at Fim Tofu Plus. This is sprouted tofu which has more protein and also fortified with vitamins B2, B6, B12, D and Calcium. This is the one I picked up today- my son is sprouting like a weed and all the vitamins I can put into him, I am going to! LOL

We used some of our Nosoya Tofu Plus tofu and made Tofu Pad Thai. This is a Thai dish with peanuts and noodles, which is a little bit spicy and quite delicious. The tofu is a great substitute for chicken in this dish.
Get creative and have fun!
