I finally tried tofu! Some of you may be wondering... what IS tofu? Tofu is a smooth soy based meat substitute that you can use in dishes for extra protein. It comes in different thicknesses, such as firm. I tried firm tofu, and it was really soft. The texture almost reminds me of Jello. It doesn't have much taste to it, and it has no color... but because of this, it's great to add to food. Careful about tofu though. Soy, which tofu is made out of, is often genetically modified (GMO). This means they are genetically altered. There are harmful effects of eating GMO products. I recommend buying tofu labeled either organic or no-GMO. Other than that, tofu is awesome, and you all should try it!
*Tofu is vegan friendly!*
