Is Tofu Good For You Or Bad For You?

Made of soybeans, tofu is an excellent source of plant-based protein. In fact, it’s considered to be a complete protein, meaning that it contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs to stay healthy. Eating tofu has also shown to protect against numerous chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancers. Tofu also contains essential vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium and manganese.

Bear in mind, most tofu is genetically modified. If you’re concerned about this, you can opt for organic tofu varieties.

  2. Now add the rest of the ingredients (Images 2-3).
  3. Blend until you achieve a creamy consistency, and all the ingredients are well blended (Image 4).

Top Tips For Making Tofu Chutney Recipe

  • Always opt for silken tofu for the perfect creamy consistency
  • Use a fresh medium garlic clove instead of ready-made garlic. It makes all the difference
  • Add fresh dill. This gives this chutney a punch of flavour
  • You can add more chilli flakes for an additional spicy kick
  • Refrigerate leftover chutney in an airtight container. It tastes even better (and is creamier!) the following day
