This recipe of tofu burgers is high in various vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Tofu is a low calorie, high protein dairy alternative. It is produced by a coagulating soya milk to form curds, a process similar to how dairy cheese is produced. It has a spongy texture so the herbs and spices are absorbed well to give a palate taste. In fact, these easy and healthy tofu burgers get plenty of flavour from the onions, garlic and different herbs such as mint and basil. In addition, this recipe also offers a spicy taste by using some chili sauce. This recipe is suitable for normal, vegetarian and vegan diets. In addition, it is also suitable for children who suffer from lactose intolerance or fussy eating.
