Tofu is a gelatinous block of soy milk
that is most prevalent throughout Asia, but has more recently been eaten in the United States
as well. It comes in varying consistencies, from ‘extra soft’ to ‘extra firm’.
Tofu tastes bad to mediocre on its own. In the United States, it’s used primarily as a substitute for meat
in vegetarian cuisine. It’s common for ‘health’ advocates to eat large portions of tofu despite the fact that it’s not terribly nutritious.
