Whether you’re looking to scale back on animal products or simply want to add some variety to your recipe repertoire, soy may be the solution
Soy is the only plant with protein comparable to meat, eggs and dairy, and it provides health benefits, including heart, muscle and bone strength. It is also the only protein recognised by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States for its role in reducing cholesterol and risk of heart disease.
If you’re uncertain how to cook with soy, you may be surprised by the diverse ways you can incorporate this nutrient-rich food into your meals and snacks. As these recipes show, it’s easy to cook with soy throughout the day, from fluffy breakfast pancakes to a fresh take on hummus or a delicious tofu dinner loaded with flavour.
In addition to the nutrition benefits and versatility, soy uses fewer natural resources, such as water and land, than any other protein source so you can feel good about making it a star ingredient in your kitchen.
