Tofu, being soy-based, is rich in protein, iron, and calcium as well as phytoestrogens for hormonal balance. They are enhanced with amaranth, a South American superfood seed, which adds a good dose of protein, vitamins, and minerals as well as a pleasant, earthy flavor. Combined with anti-inflammatory spices, like turmeric or garlic, and nutritious vegetables, like tomatoes and green peppers, these light and creamy tofu quiches with amaranth will give your body all it needs for a productive day.
