It has a subtle flavour and can be used in savoury and sweet dishes. it is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish. It originated in China some 2,000 years ago. Tofu has a low calorie count and relatively large amounts of protein. It is high in iron and is often high in calcium and magnesium. We use fresh firm tofu here in our kitchen to add to our soups, hot dishes, salads. We make grilled tofu and dressings. We also use tofu also in a range of desserts and cakes.
