Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Tofu (soy bean curd)

(Tofu)  This is a one pound block of firm tofu, a bean curd made from soy beans.  Tofu is a very versatile product.  It can be broiled or roasted.  It can be used in salads, soups, stir fries, dips, and in making cream sauces.  Tofu has very little flavor of its own, but readily picks up the flavor of the other ingredients.  See nutritional information below.

Tofu, firm, prepared with calcium sulfate and magnesium chloride (nigari)  (1)

Footnotes:
1    Descriptive terms (soft, firm, extra firm) vary in usage between manufacturers as there are no standards for the various types of tofu.
2    Manufacturers use either magnesium chloride (nigari), calcium sulfate, or both in varying quantities to precipitate the protein. Calcium and magnesium contents will vary accordingly.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-7)
