Brazil Nut Tofu

In honor of the World Cup Tomorrow (go Argentina!)  we are sharing our Brazil Nut Tofu Recipe for you!
Brazil nuts contain over 700% of your daily intake for Selenium, a mineral essential to the Immune System and Thyroid Function - Both which you'll need while watching the game with friends!
Also big benefits in the magnesium department which helps with the functioning of muscles, the production of protein and absorption of energy from food.
