Written by Nicole Zablocki, Eco-Kitchen Coordinator

This delicious and easy recipe uses firm tofu. Tofu is a very healthy alternative to consuming meat as it an excellent source of protein and does not contain any cholesterol. Tofu is very high in calcium and iron, and contains powerful antioxidants that inhibit the growth of cancer cells when consumed regularly.
