Lusog Notes

Did you know that tofu can be your low-cost, healthy alternative to meat? This dish also contains iron that is needed for normal metabolism and in making red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

Chef`s Tip

To add texture to the tofu, use Japanese bread crumbs instead of ordinary bread crumbs. Japanese bread crumbs are coarser which will contrast nicely against the silken tofu.
