Soybeanare perhaps the most potent ingredient we have in our arsenal of healing foods.Recent studies show that compounds found exclusively in them (called isoflavones) can lower cholesterol levels, balance hormones, activate toxin-destroying enzymes and play a critical role in preventing many forms of cancer.How can you take advantage of the unique properties of this wonderpod?It’s easy: just integrate it into your daily diet in its most versatile form, tofu.
Tofu is made by separating soy milk into curds and whey (a thin, clean, light-amber-colored liquid), pressing the curds together, cutting the resulting soy cheese into blocks and packing them into the whey or water. Tofu is the most popular soy food in the United States today, with hundreds of producers.It can be found in the produce section of most supermarkets as well as in natural food stores.While tofu is usually sold fresh in Asian markets, you can also find it in dried, fried, fermented and aged forms.The latter variety is more like an aged dairy cheese with a strong flavor.
The amount of whey pressed out of the soymilk curds during the tofu-making process is what ultimately determines its texture. Soft tofu (some-times called Japanese-style tofu) has a custardy consistency, which is great for making dips, dressings, custards, puddings or any dish with a soft texture.Firm tofu has a medium density and is the best type to use when making tofu salads, cheesecakes and scrambled tofu.Extra- firm tofu is dense, holds sliced or cubed shapes well and is ideal for cutlets and stir-fried dishes. The market for ready-made tofu products is big, and it’s only getting bigger.You can buy several different types of baked and marinated tofu or tofu that’s been seasoned with Chinese five-spice powder or French herbs.These varieties can be eaten straight from the container or cooked with other ingredients.Tofu mayonnaise is a creamy condiment that spreads and tastes like egg mayonnaise but has 50 percent less fat.Tofu salad dressings are available as a more healthful alternative to creamy, dairy-based salad dressings. If you’re a “from-scratch” kind of cook, you will enjoy the above recipe that make excellent use of firm or extra-firm tofu. Soft tofu can also be used in this dish. The above dishe showcase its remarkable versatility.
