Tofu is made from soy milk. It has been used in Chinese cooking for over two thousand years. Tofu has a subtle flavor and 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 has low calorie and is healthy. 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.
