Steam Egg with Tofu, Chinese Mushroom and Okra
(For 4 servings)

HKDA Dietitian Tips:

  • Tofu and eggs are good choices of high biological value protein and contain less saturated fat than meat. Scientific studies have shown that the soy protein of tofu has the ability to lower the bad cholesterol in blood and may reduce the risks of heart disease.
