Peppered Garlic Tofu Steak

Tofu/this soybean cheese is an Asian origin. Production of tofu involves soaking soybeans in water and creating soy milk, then curdling the milk using a substance such as calcium sulfate or lemon juice. The curds are separated from the whey and usually packaged in block form. Most tofu brands offer a range of soft and firm varieties, which differ mainly in the amount of water retained. Pressing tofu can remove additional water.. Tofu is a good protein source, coz of the amount and nature of the protein it contains. The protein content is higher in firm types of tofu than in softer types. Firm tofus are used to prepare many delicious dishes while soft tofu are used in preparing desserts and bakes.

This must be a super flavourful steak. I usually use tofu instead of paneer in all my recipes and my daughter would never find it out. Let me try this for her. I am sure she would love it..
