One of the most commonly eaten foods in a vegetarian diet is tofu. Tofu is often called the vegetarian’s meat as it supplies all the necessary amino acids and is a complete protein, sourced from the soybean. It is simply the result of pressing the curds of coagulated soymilk into soft blocks. Tofu is low in kilojoules and high in nutrients, which is why studies show that soy proteins can help lower the dreaded bad LDL cholesterol. This then leads us to connect the dots and say that tofu and similar soy proteins can help to reduce risks of heart disease, menopause symptoms and help with bone strength when eaten in a healthy diet.
Here at John Colet we use tofu in our stir-fries, in our’sausage’ rolls, and as a flavoursome minced meat substitute in our Bolognese and chilli. So if the menu says Beef Chilli , you know what we are doing.
Please remember your plate, cup and bowl every day.
