What it is: Tofu – otherwise known as bean curd – is made from mashed soybeans and is a staple in Asian and vegetarian cuisine. There are two main kinds of tofu: soft (or silken) and firm. Different recipes call for different kinds of tofu, so take note before you head to the store.
Where to buy it: Tofu is commonly available in major grocery chains. Look for it in coolers around the produce or deli sections of your local store.
Why we love it: We like cooking with tofu because it’s a great source of protein whether it’s fried, scrambled or blended into a sweet treat. Tofu is a foodie shapeshifter, taking on the spicy attributes and marinade flavours of your chosen dish.
