I love tofu but have to confess that I haven’t played much with it outside of frying it. So when I found out that Sunday Supper was doing a meatless theme I decided that it was time to branch outside of my comfort zone with tofu. When I had previously looked up recipes for tofu burgers it seemed the normal way to do it was slice the tofu and just serve it as is grilled. Now to me that didn’t seem very exciting so when I found this recipe on Chef in You I decided it was more down the route I wanted to go. This burger was so full of flavour and the texture was perfect.
I am so excited about the menu today because we are always looking for new meatless recipes to try. Going meatless for meals during the week was one of the first changes I made to our budget when we started this journey of budgeting and it has made such a huge difference.
