This recipe is an easy to make, and easy to eat addition to the outdoor fun on National Picnic Week. Tofu is a good source of protein and comes in a range of textures, firm suitable for grilling and stir-fries, soft for desserts and sauces. Good news for all the women out there suffering with menopausal symptoms, hot flushes, for example, may be improved by incorporating tofu in the diet. Tofu contains phytoestrogens called isoflavones which have a similar structure to the female hormone oestrogen, which could slightly boost the oestrogen levels in women. Sesame seeds have numerous benefits, from heart, skin and hair health to reducing inflammation in the joints.
