Did You Know...
Tofu is a mild and smooth custardlike mixture made from pureed soybeans. It's low in calories, cholesterol free and considered to be a good and inexpensive source of vegetable protein.
Substitution
A cup of sliced regular white mushrooms, about 3 ounces, can be substituted for the dried black mushrooms.
Substitution
If you're not ready to try tofu, then just use 2 cans (15 to 16 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained, instead of it.
