Tofu is a bean curd. It is made by grinding up soybeans and allowing them to coagulate. It is then pressed to remove moisture and cut into squares. The end product looks like small blocks of semi-soft white cheese. According to some nutritionists tofu is the perfect food. It is very high in protein and is often used as a meat substitute by vegetarians. Tofu is semi-perishable; store it in the refrigerator as you would cheese.
