Most good vegetarians will know the health benefits of tofu. It's an excellent high-protein alternative to meat, protects against hormone-related cancers, relieves the effects of the menopause and has significant anti-cancer action. Latest research also shows that is protects men against heart disease and - amazingly - baldness. It has very little taste, but is excellent at absorbing the flavours around it. Here we leave it to marinate in soy sauce, ginger and garlic to make a wonderful addition to a healthy kebab. the kebabs can be cooked in the kitchen or on a barbecue. (Serves 4)
