    Cook’s tip The savouriness of smoked tofu works well with the baked beans. If you have plain tofu, use this, adding a good pinch of smoked paprika with the garlic and vegan block. Tofu is a good source of protein and low in saturated fat. Replacing foods high in saturated fat with those higher in unsaturated fat can help to improve cholesterol levels.
