Week 11: Tofu

We’re really busy this week and next, so the food postings and ingredient-involved meals are going to be a bit lacking.  Please accept my apologies in advance.

This week we’re enjoying TOFU!

A little bit from Brandon’s favorite food book, “On Food and Cooking:”

Tofu/bean curd is a curdled soy milk, a concentrated mass of protein and oil formed by coagulating the dissolved proteins with salts that yoke them and the protein-coated oil droplets together. Bean curd was invented in China around 2,000 years ago, was well-known by 500 AD, and became a daily food beginning around 1300.
