Spotlight on Protein-Packed Tofu

Tofu is an important staple of many vegetarian diets because it is full of healthy protein. This soy product is also very low in fat, which makes it a great addition to any diet. There is also research that shows tofu can lower cholesterol and might even keep you from developing some kinds of cancers.

Researchers have found that enough tofu in a diet can provide the same amount of protein, energy, fat, carbohydrates, alcohol, and fiber. It also can lower triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein. Tofu soaks up the flavor of sauces, which helps it enhance the taste of any dish.

How to Serve and Drink Sake

Sake is Japanese rice wine that comes with certain traditions for both serving and drinking it. If you are the host, you should hold the flask with both hands so that your palms face down and fill your guest’s cups in turn. Wait for one of your guest’s to serve you and hold your cup with one hand and support it with the other as it is being served.

Most sake is served warm and it is meant to sip slowly. Do not drink it like a shot. Before you take your first sip, you can cheers by saying “kampei.” Learn more about drinking sake in this video.

The Four Major Types of Sake

Sake is a welcome addition to the Japanese diet and makes an appearance as regularly on special occasions as it does at regular weeknight dinners. Keep reading to learn more about the four basic kinds of sake so you know what to order the next time you visit a Japanese restaurant:

Sake in Late Afternoon Sun

This form of pure sake is not enriched with starches or sugars. It has no more alcohol added after it is brewed. When junmai is created, it requires a full 30% of the rice kernel to be milked and polished away. The finished beverages has a full body and more acidity than other sakes, but not a lot of fragrance. It has an explosive, puckering taste and is most often served hot.

If you prefer a more fragrant, less assaulting flavor, you might like the taste of honjozo a little more than junmai. Although the tastes are similar, honjozo has a little more alcohol, which adds smoothness to the flavor. This kind of sake is usually served warm instead of hot.

The rice is polished more thoroughly in ginjo sake than the previous types, which means that it has a lighter flavor with more complicated tastes. Ginjo is combined with a special yeast, which means it is fermented at lower temperatures. It is very fragrant and is ideal when it is served chilled.

With even more polishing of the rice, daiginjo sake is significantly more fragrant than any other style. Most kinds of daiginjo sake are full-bodied and taste the best when they are served chilled.
