This is one of my favorite ways to make tofu and trust me you won’t miss the meat in this recipe. Because the tofu has a good source of protein and essential amino acids.

It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and the minerals.

In addition, tofu is a good source of magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1. So go ahead and indulge!
