Tofu has been long consumed within China for over 2,000 years and is a traditional staple in cuisines across other Asian countries. What tofu has to offer is a low calorie, high protein option that is also high in iron. Why are we talking about tofu right now? Well, because Avenue Bread has added this amazing sponge-like option to our Bellingham café menus!
Enlisting the creativity of our prep staff, our very own Sara Warberg-Dolan has put together a wonderful vegan-friendly ginger-soy marinade for our organic tofu. Each dish contains a powerful punch of flavor! Fresh and light, they are the perfect food transition into spring and we cannot wait to hear what you have to say. Come by any of our cafes and give one or all a try.
