Grilled, stir-fried, boiled or raw, tofu is prepared in many ways. Tofu is made with mashed soybeans boiled, then strained into soymilk with a coagulating agent added. Soybeans are also known as "the meat of the garden" and are rich in protein, low in fat, and low in calories. They are a great ingredient for vegetarians and people who care about healthy food. Tofu is consumed in many places around the world these days, and it is a must-have item in Japanese dining.
