Tofu on the grill is a very quick meal. The longest part of the recipe is the preparation, marinating the tofu. you can marinate it for as little as 15 minutes, but I think it tastes the best when marinated for an hour.
Tofu has many health benefits:
- good source of protein
- contains all nine essential elements
- contains magnesium
- contains copper and zinc
- may lower bad cholesterol
- contains phytoestrogens (isoflavones – chemicals found in plant foods) phytoestrogens take the same action as oestrogens that are produced by the body. They may even lower the risk of breast cancer by binding to breast cells.
- Maybe reduce the risk of heart disease
