Did you know?
Tofu originates in China and is made by curdling fresh soy milk and pressing it into a solid white block. It was rumored to have been discovered by a Chinese cook who accidentally combined curdled soy milk and nigiri seaweed together. Moreover, tofu has several health benefits, as it is believed to help lower levels of cholesterol and thus the risk of heart disease.
