What is TOFU?
TOFU is made from soybeans, water and a coagulant or curdling agent. It can be an alternative delicious meat dish. It is very high in protein and calcium. If you layer it with spices and marinades, it will turn out to be a delicious and nutritious food.
Asian cuisines for hundred years have used TOFU as their staple and comfort food. Only recently the Western vegetarian cooking started to notice how delicious this can be.

How many kinds are TOFU?
There are two main kinds of Tofu:
Firm Tofu: good for frying or pepes(using banana leaves and grill it)
Soft Tofu: good for stir fry or soup
