by ADMIN on SEPTEMBER 9, 2011

Crunchy outside; springy, moist inside. Spiced outside; cool inside. Omega-3 smothered outside; protein packed inside. Fiber full outside; antioxidants on the inside. And only 30 minutes until you can eat it all up!

This tofu is a great mix of flavors, textures and nutrients – a deliciously healthy addition to your meal!
