Soy products such as tofu, tempeh and soy milk are very rich in protein. This protein is of very high quality because it contains all essential amino acids. The amino acids of soy combine very well with the amino acids of cereals. The soy protein is therefore very important for vegans.

Soy is a good source of lecithin and vitamin E. These natural antioxidants prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Soy is rich in magnesium, which plays an important function for the bones, heart and arteries.

 Most people do not like it owing to its resemblence to non-veg. This recipe is especially prepared for all those kids and grown ups. I tried it on my son-in-law who despises soya nuggets but relished this snack...  :-)
