Tofu Vegetable Soup

Discovered over 2000 years ago by the Chinese, tofu is sometimes called "the cheese of Asia," because of its physical resemblance to a block of farmer's cheese. Tofu is a highly nutritious, protein-rich food that is made from the curds of soybean milk. Off-white in color, it is usually sold in rectangular blocks. Tofu is a staple in the cuisines of many Asian countries. Tofu is its Japanese name, while in China it is known as doufu.. Tofu contains a low amount of calories, relatively large amount of iron, and little fat. Tofu has been found to be a great source of calcium and vitamin E as well.
