I was not a tofu fan.
It's the texture and blandness that I come across so often, that trips me up. But I know it's not only a healthy protein (also: good source of calcium and iron, no cholesterol or trans fat, each package contains only all natural ingredients, including non-GMO soybeans), it's also a great option that emboldens vegetarian dinner - something that I'm trying to do at least once a week.
In my quest for a good tofu, I tried a lot that I did not enjoy. So imagine my happy surprise to have found Sunrise Stir-Fry Tofu n' Sauce, made in Canada.
What make these guys different is the tofu is nice and firm and it comes pre-sliced with flavourful sauces so all you have to do add your choice of veg and rice or noodles, and in 5 minutes, dinner is done!
At first glance, I thought the portion might be a little small for us, but it made 4 portions (which for us means that we'll serve up and then go back for a top up), which was fantastic. And it comes in a variety of flavours - Teriyaki, Sesame Ginger and Sweet & Sour - so you can switch it up and not tire of having the same thing over and over.
For only $2.99 a package, it's an amazingly affordable option for mealtimes. I mean, you don't even have to dish out for getting a bottle of sauce - it's all right there in the package! And to be so convenient to use, it fits right in with what a need - healthy options to get a good meal on the table fast.
So from now on, don't be surprised to see tofu in my fridge or on the dinner table.
Shop Sunrise and eat healthy.
