Known as the 'cheese of Asia', soft creamy coloured tofu is made by grinding cooked soya beans to produce a milk that is then solidified with a mineral coagulant (calcium sulphate). Tofu is high in protein, very low in saturated fats, and cholesterol-free. A 100g (3 1/2 oz) serving of steamed tofu contains about 73 calories.

Tofu is naturally bland and can therefore be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. There are two basic types: silken tofu, which is soft and suitable for making dressings, sauces and dairy-free products such as ice cream or cheesecake, and firm tofu, which is more solid and can be marinated to give it some flavour. Firm tofu can be stir-fried, grilled, scrambled, pickled, smoked, baked and even barbecued. Steamed tofu is a good source of calcium (from the calcium sulphate used to make it) and a useful source of manganese and vitamin E. It also contains phosphorus and iron, and is therefore useful as part of a balanced vegetarian diet. Tofu can be substituted for meat in many recipes....
