Tofu Mayonnaise

 

Tofu Mayonnaise - Smell of Rosemary.

This is a low-fat alternative to ‘classic’ mayonnaise.  It contains no saturated fat, and tastes great on sandwiches, hamburgers, egg salad and in any instance where you would use mayonnaise.  Now, let me mention some of the outstanding qualities of soybeans. Besides high nutritional value, soybeans contain a chemical compound called isoflavones, which are known to reduce risk of diabetes, stroke, heart disease, breast cancer, osteoporosis and menopausal symptoms.  

Additionally, Tofu is the only plant protein that contains all 8 essential amino acids, meaning they are “complete” proteins like egg whites or chicken. A 2.9 ounce slice of firm tofu  contains 13 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and 0.5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids.
