🇵🇭🇪🇺MY VERSION OF BURGERS with TOFU and GROUND MEAT

This is onother request by my daughter who’s craving for tofu burgers.
Kid friendly BURGER Recipe: This quick, easy, burger recipe is a sure way to get your kids or anyone else to eat tofu. Tofu burgers hold together well, and are great for grilling too.
For a light meal, skip the bun, and serve tofu with ground meat burger patties with steamed veggies or a salad. Here I serve it with fresh mix salad and garlic-yoghurt sauce or dessing, my family loves it very much specially the 2 kids.

TOFU and GROUND MEAT BURGERS – iCookiTravel

A Tip from me,— use leftover burger mix to make sloppy joes, or scambled tofu. Cold burger patties make great sandwiches. Improvise freely with the seasonings and the grains. But if you want onions, use them on the outside, not the inside – they make the mixture too wet.

YOU NEED…….

* 6pcs. extra firm Tofu
* 75g ground meat Pork or Beef (Optional, I added because of my kids preference)
* 1/4 c whole wheat flour or corn flour
* 1 tsp thyme, dried
* 1 tsp coriander or cilantro, dried or powder
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp ginger powder
* 2 tbsps Soy sauce
* 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp pepper
* 1 egg
* some Canola or any vegetable oil for frying

FOR GARLIC-YOGHURT SAUCE OR DRESSING:
* 2 cups of Yoghurt
* 4 cloves Garlic, minced
* 1 tsp. Garlic powder
* some white pepper powder
* some salt

Saba – iCookiTravel

Banana- Saba, boiling it for my meal is healthy snack for diabetics. Since a half cup of fruit every dinner is allowable for diabetics, it is perfectly fine to regularly include the saba in one’s meal or diet. One must be noted that the ideal snack for diabetic is the boiled banana saba. Since banana is high in fiber, eating banana is heavy on the belly, it is one way of driving down one’s appetite so that one is prevented from overeating.
