Kids love nuggets, and the Tofu version can be as lovable. These crispy little bites have a soft, savory interior, making it quite addicting, just like other nuggets.

Tofu is versatile and can be used in so many ways. You can have it as it is since it’s already cooked, but the taste might be a bit bland. In fact, the soft kind is eaten like yogurt for breakfast in China, Singapore, and Taiwan.  But in general, tofu can transform according to the flavor that you want it to be.

You can make it more delicious by marinating it, you can fry it without spices and use it as a side snack, with soy vinegar sauce,  and you can even add a sweet syrup for the soft kind tapioca balls, making it a very delicious dessert. Today approximately 90 -95% of soy is transgenic. 

Verify on the packaging if the tofu or soy product that you’re buying is GMO-free or labeled organic before you buy them. Another way is to make tofu yourself with organic beans.  Click here to learn how to make tofu from scratch.
