TOFU WITH GREENS / TOFU PALAK BHAJI

Hello!!

 

Today is monday and I am back with another fabulous recipe as per the theme. In this recipe  fresh Tofu is cooked with fresh greens . Another great idea to incorporate greens into your diet.This is a very simple and easy recipe with easily available ingredients in your pantry.

This week i managed to get some fresh organic Palak and fresh tofu.I was so happy to cook .Fresh greens make me so happy and whenever I am in Malaysia i incorporate fresh and green vegetables in my diet.I love the taste of vegetables there. Local varieties taste much better and are more flavourful.

Palak is a super food loaded with tons of nutrients in a low calorie package. Dark, leafy greens like spinach are important for skin, hair, and bone health. They also provide protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals. Tofu, also known as bean curd, is a food  made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks. It is a component in East Asian and Southeast Asian cuisines. Tofu can be soft, firm, or extra firm
