Tofu in Broth with Seafood
Sally Shi-Po POON, Hong Kong Nutrition Association and Registered Dietitian (UK) said, "Using seafood, egg and tofu (bean curd) in lieu of red meat, this recipe is rich in protein all the same. Tofu is rich in calcium, which is vital for bones and teeth. Tofu also contains soy protein, which is beneficial to the heart. As the ingredients are mostly steamed and cooked in stock, no cooking oil is needed for this recipe, thus the dish counts less towards energy intake. A welcome among weight-watchers."
