Tofu Recipes - Recipes and Menus

Tofu used to be only “health food”, but it has become chic. Mainstream chefs use it in smoothies, creamy sauces and dressings or as the protein in a veggie sandwich.

Today, more people are interested in eating tofu because it’s made from soybeans. Soybeans have substances, known in scientific circles as isoflavones, which are particularly healthful. Because these phytochemicals are phytoestrogens, they play a role in cancer protection, acting like extremely weak estrogens. The phytoestrogens attach themselves to the estrogen receptor sites and prevent stronger, damaging estrogens from having a place to attach. In this role, they protect from cancer. In another role, the soy protein is helpful in controlling cholesterol levels and preventing heart disease.

These tofu recipies are great examples of not only healthful, but also wonderful tasting dishes:
