Lusog Notes

Did you know that tofu can be your low-cost, healthy alternative to meat? This Tofu Nuggets in BBQ Sauce dish also contains iron that is needed for normal metabolism and in making red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

Chef's Tip

To add texture to the tofu, use Japanese breadcrumbs instead of ordinary breadcrumbs. Japanese breadcrumbs are coarser which will contrast nicely against the silken tofu.
