House Foods Tofu EnchiladaDid you know April is National Soyfoods Month? Soyfoods tend to be low in fat and cholesterol, and they’re also a great source of iron, calcium, fiber, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc, so if you’re looking for a great new food type to toss into your dinner mix, give them a shot!

Here’s a recipe we liked for vegetable enchiladas. For other soyfoods recipes, you can check out the Soyfoods Association of North America’s website.
