Tofu For You


Tofu and chicken burgers are yum! Seriously tummy rumbling yum! They are a nice and healthy alternative to beef and they are surprisingly lighter too. 

Serve with your favourite sauce (try miso-mayo)and salad, rice or stick it in a bun and chomp away!




\\ Recipe


Ingredients
  • 450 grams of minced chicken (use extra lean turkey if you cant find chicken)
  • 1 pack of firm tofu
  • half an onion finely cubed
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • Minced or grated ginger to taste
  • salt to taste
  • Cooking oil - vegetable or sunflower will do fine.
Method

  1. Wrap tofu in a paper towel to for about 10 minutes. Unwrap and then microwave for 90 seconds, then roughly break up the tofu with a fork.
  2. Mix tofu, minced chicken, onion, egg, salt, ginger and knead. Add in little portions of panko as you go along till you get a semi firm but still soft mixture.
  3. Divide and roll out into little patties. The patties will still be rather soft and will require care when moving but don't worry they should still hold together!
  4. Add oil into a non stick frying pan and shallow fry each of the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side on a medium-high heat or until brown.
  5. Drain and serve!
