Protein Solution: Simple Delicious Baked Tofu with Tamari Seasoning
Who knew tofu could offer so much delicious protein and be so simple to prepare? Part of your overall success to healthy eating is being well prepared to eat well and finding healthy protein alternatives. Granted some will argue on the quality of protein values. Don’t over complicate it. I’m not a big cook and need to eat for energy and have very little time. This simple, delicious recipe for baked tofu is a great addition to make your meal more complete and tasty and packed with good things.
I must admit, I’m not normally a fan of tofu if it wiggles and tastes like tofu. So that’s why in this recipe I chose the super firm organic tofu to stand up to my taste buds and allow for finicky preferences for texture be swayed. Also tofu saves you money. It’s so inexpensive and livens up my other favorite treat, coconut rice.
I love to put tofu in my salad as a substitute or alternative to chicken or other meat based protein. Tofu offers 17 grams of protein in a ¼ cup, 135 mg of potassium and it’s fairly low in calories. This is awesome!
