Until the mid-19th century in Japan, religion generally prohibited the eating of meat. Tofu is called "meat from the fields" because it is made from soybeans and is high in protein. For centuries, tofu has been a very important food in Japan, not only because of religion but also for health reasons. Agedashi dofu is deep fried tofu with a soysauce based sauce. Really yummy and few ingredients.
