Vegetarian Burger with Tofu Patties | How to make Tofu Patty Burger

>>  Tuesday, March 10, 2015

We are starting the second week of BM#50 today. I will be sharing some of the dishes listed under American Sandwiches. when I landed first in this listing, I was so excited that one could have a choice of so many variations. I actually didn't look deeper. I was all for taking up this theme and infact even thought I might do it twice.

However when it was time to short list some of the dishes, I was shocked to note that there hardly was much choice for vegetarians. I must have went up and down the same list some 10 times, before concluding that I have landed myself in a soup. Most of the vegetarian options I have already blogged about.

Still I was hopeful something will turn out good. I decided that maybe I could do a new veggie patty with more vegetables included. That further helped me arriving at with some ideas.

What you will be reading about for the next three days are my take on what I read from the list. I have made sure I wasn't indiazising the dish. I can't help if something sneaked in. 

Since I realized that kids are not very keen on Tofu, I decided it will help if I try to sneak it through something. It worked as the patties I made for the burger were with Tofu and nobody found it out. I had declared that it was going to be burgers for dinner. I always think I shouldn't declare, as I find the kids after me forever to get it done. Still I end up doing it, maybe as an encouragement for myself. So finally I made it for dinner.

Peddu was so excited and loved every bit of it. I had added peas forgetting that he doesn't like it. Seeing it, he was saying he doesn't want peas ones. I again had to hid them in the burger! The way my kids force me to hide things in their food, makes me wonder how they will ever get to like everything.

Anyway I was happy they altleast ate their burgers without complaints.

I also make these patties with no specific recipe, just throw in whatever is available and it turns out good as a burger patty. My older one surely will go for it!

I too went thru the list twice to make sure that I am not picking the theme for the right reason.:) However I saw that Pavani came up with beautiful recipes under the 'Sandwich' theme.
A nice way you picked to sneak in healthy stuff to feed the picky ones.
