|Herb Crusted Tofu burger|
I made this burger for lunch today and it was so yummy.It has high amount of protein in it and it was a filling meal by itself..The marination for the tofu worked so well ,since the tofu is bland, it absorbed all the acidic marination and came out so flavourful..It you want it to be much healthier,you could add lettuce leaves,onion and tomato slices to it...But I kept it plain and simple..You could even substitute tofu with paneer also.You could also add some chopped coriander/mint/basil to the breadcrumbs..I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 3 with the theme “Picnic food”.. Hope you try this and let me know what you think..
