Tofu is one of the richest vegetarian sources of protein, and a complete one. This nutritional powerhouse is not only delicious, but so versatile that it can stand in for a post workout snack or star in a stir-fry supper. Below are 3 simple recipes to incorporate tofu into your everyday meals.

Tofu, or bean curd, is a popular food derived from soya. It is made by curdling fresh soya milk, pressing it into a solid block and then cooling it – in much the same way that traditional dairy cheese is made by curdling and solidifying milk. The liquid (whey) is discarded, and the curds are pressed to form a cohesive bond. A staple ingredient in Thai and Chinese cookery, it can be cooked in different ways to change its texture from smooth and soft to crisp and crunchy.
