I try to incorporate tofu into my dishes whenever possible due to my need for soy in my diet. Called the perfect food, tofu is made from Soya beans and is high in protein, low in saturated fats and a good source of calcium as well as vitamin E. It is also cholesterol free. Recent studies have also shown that Soya beans and products derived from them may play a role in preventing various types of cancer, particularly breast cancer. It has also been seen to have preventative capacity with regard to osteoporosis and symptoms related to menopause.

1 (8oz.) pkg. linguine
1 (8oz.) pkg. fresh sugar snap peas

1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce

1 (8oz.) pkg. Thai-flavored or plain tofu cut in cubes
