Yummy Tofu with Beetroot

Tofu with beet root is not only a delicious dish but its luminous color is very appetizing because a friend chef of mine said once that before putting the food into our mouth and tasting it. We first have it with our eyes. There are few such dishes looking at them you get the vibes of goodness and health. Beetroot is superstore house of Vitamin C and iron and the root. The beta cyanin in beetroot can help detox your liver, it have a knock on effect for our blood stream and help the body to eliminate toxin and potentially preventing the buildup of fatty deposits. Tofu on the other hand is low in fat, calories and cholesterol. It is an excellent source of high quality protein from non meat foods. Tofu is also rich in calcium and good source of Vitamin B. So tofu with beetroot is not only a yummy dish, but a pack of healthy goodness.
