    Lusog Notes
    Did you know that tofu can be your low-cost, healthy alternative for meat? This Mapo Tofu recipe is also high in iron that is needed for the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen all over the body. On the other hand, niacin promotes normal digestion and healthy skin.
    Chef`s Tip
    For this recipe, it is best to use firm tofu which will hold its shape better than silken tofu.
