I made this recently when I needed something quick, good and nourishing; it is my new favourite feel-good food bite with fresh flavours and a base rich in plant protein and isoflavones that I feel really help support my journey through menopause.
I am grateful I can buy Heiwa Tofu made here in Maine from regionally grown organic soybeans; it is by far the best quality tofu I have ever eaten. You can taste the love that goes into making this tofu with a pure flavour and a great texture.
