Tofu has been used in Chinese cuisine for over two thousand years. It has gained popularity in other parts of the world because it is a low-fat, cholesterol-free source of protein. Tofu is versatile and takes on the flavor of the spices or sauces. It can be fried, braised, or cooked in soups and stews.

When I talk to my Canadian friends about tofu dishes, I often hear comments like “Tofu is healthy and low in calories. But I don’t like it because it tastes too plain.” Well my friend, I can assure you that tofu can be very delicious. This savory dish goes well with rice.
