Tofu with Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil

I feel sorry for Tofu.

Because first of all, it was named “tofu.”

Can you think of a less sexy-sounding word than tofu?

I sure can’t.

And second of all, I feel sorry for tofu because it’s often written off as a tasteless health food for barefoot-in-the-grass hippie people.

Tofu with Asian Dressing

But tofu is great.

…it is!!!

I eat this dish all the time in the summer and I swear it’s more refreshing than a popsicle on a hot day.

It’s simple, tasty, cold, and yes, it’s healthy!
