So what is tofu? Tofu can be described as being a bland tasting food of complete plant origin that is made of soybeans, water and a coagulant. Although having been originated and used in Asian countries such as China and Japan for hundreds of years, it has not been so long since the Western society adopted it as part of a vegetarian diet.
In introducing this food, this discussion can be continued by describing one recipe that has been found to give tasteless tofu a superb flavor.
Puttanesca Tofu Scramble is one recipe that has made tofu magnificent to eat. This fact can be proven by Isa Moscowitz who created the Web site Post Punk Kitchen and shaped Puttanesca Tofu Scramble into the wonder that it is as she has shown on the Web site.
Moscowitz’s Web site has been used to promote her incredible cooking style. She includes many international entrée recipes and baking recipes that are filling and tasty. Puttanesca Tofu Scramble is one that stands out and makes plain tofu have a taste that is out of this world. With its Meditteranean version of the Italian pasta dish Spaghetti alla puttanesca, Moscowitz has created an incredible dish when it comes to crafting delicious tofu recipes such as this one.
What makes Puttanesca Tofu Scramble taste so amazing are the ingredients that give the tofu such a satisfying flavor. The tofu and minced garlic sautéed in olive oil, the saltiness of the black olives and green olives, the tanginess of the capers, and the addition of the oregano, thyme, diced Roma tomatoes, and the added heat of the crushed pepper all give this dish a flavor that screams tofu can be created in amazing ways.
But these wonderful ingredients are not the only factors that make this dish great. Some of these ingredients also come with health benefits. If we start off with the tofu this gives this dish a great protein component; the garlic reduces unhealthy fats and cholesterol; the olives are high in monsaturated fat which is a fat that the body needs for cellular function; the capers help promote healthy liver function; oregano’s oils help to stop growth of many types of bacteria; and tomatoes of course have Vitamin C.
