EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Known in China as “the meat without bones,” tofu is a top-notch protein source. It’s made from soy milk mixed with a curdling agent. The resulting soybean curd is enjoying increased popularity as the many health benefits of soy are discovered.

Add leftover tofu to scrambled eggs or egg salads for a cholesterol-free protein boost.
