When prepared correctly, tofu can be a delicious dinner option to pair alongside your favorite sides. Aside from being a good source of protein, it’s also a good source of calcium and iron.
Tofu is super versatile since it takes on any flavor you add to it, and is an affordable option to add to your weekly grocery list. It tastes delicious in tacos, baked as nuggets, or stir-fried with your favorite veggies.
