Bean Curd Mushroom with Water Spinach

Simply call it tofu, the white block made in soy milk that sometimes stinks if not stored properly.  It originated in Han dynasty in China some 2,000 years ago. People who were too conscious about their diets have switched and included tofu in their menu list instead because of its health benefits.

It’s gluten-free, low-calorie and no cholesterol. It’s also a good source of protein, iron, and calcium and provides all the essential amino acids needed in the diet.

So, give in and enjoy this simple recipe that I am sure the whole family will enjoy especially if you are ‘pinoy’.
