Tofu, instead of oil, is the basis of this fresh herb dressing.
Soya beans—one of the world's most important sources of dietary protein and polyunsaturated oil—are the source of two highly nutritious food products: tofu and soya milk.
Tofu, also known as bean curd, is remarkably nutritious, supplying complete protein and important minerals, as well as the cancer-fighting substance genistein.
Soya milk is commonly used as a non-dairy substitute, and is a great boon to the lactose-intolerant. It contains high-quality protein but has less saturated fat than dairy milk and no cholesterol.
