Ideas for Using Protein Rich Tofu

Here are two suggestions for adding protein to your diet.
First: a very simple salad.
Cut the size piece of soft or medium/soft tofu you'd like to serve. Remove the extra water from it by pressing on paper towel or a cloth. Put it on a colored plate and drizzle it with olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Garnish with fresh chopped chives or parsley. I didn't have either, so I hopscotched out to my pots on the deck and cut some arugula for the garnish and peppery flavor.

Second: vegetable soup enriched with a slice of tofu.
Heat soup bowls and soup. Slice a piece of tofu and remove the extra water. Put the tofu in the warmed bowl and pour steaming soup on top. Serve immediately, enjoy and build your muscles!

  1. You could also just slice tofu up and put it in any green salad.
