Do you tofu?

If there isn’t a block or shred of soybean curd in your refrigerator right now, chances are it crosses your plate only in restaurants, or not at all. Vegetarians, vegans and dietitians know that tofu is high in protein, iron and calcium, has little saturated fat and may help lower cholesterol. Plain tofu is mild, easy to cook with and relatively inexpensive, has a reasonably long shelf life and is more readily available in more forms than it was 16 years ago, when the research firm Soyatech began tracking tofu sales in the United States.
