Challenge Monday Ingredient

It’s time for Ingredient Challenge!!  This week the ingredient is TOFU –

I’ve NEVER had it.  Can’t wait to play in the kitchen.

I have mentioned it to my picky little girl but she quickly shunned it.  Hopefully I can come up with something that she’s willing to try. What am I gonna do with her?  A growing girl cannot live solely on grilled cheese and french fries.  Good thing I do things like this.  Tee hee.

So, here’s a few tidbits about tofu:

♦It’s a result of coagulated soy milk that’s compressed down.

♦It originated in China.

♦It’s very low in calories, and chock full of iron!

♦Excellent source of calcium.

Here’s a run-down of our current challengers so you can make sure and keep up with what we’re cooking:
