Tofu is made from curdled soy beans that are pressed into blocks. It’s often used as a meat substitute in vegan and vegetarian diets as it is high in protein and low in calories. Thanks to its health benefits and usefulness in all types of recipes, it can be enjoyed by everyone whether they’re a declared meat-lover, flexitarian or hardcore vegan.
We recommend you try tofu in this dish, but feel free to substitute the tofu for chicken or beef, if you prefer. Just be sure to adjust the cook time so that the ingredients are all fully cooked.
