Today is a guest post from my husband Sean who cooked and created a healthy and delicious dinner for us: Portabello Mushroom and Tofu Burgers. Check it out.
I love burgers. Ever since I was a kid they have been my favorite food. But I have begun to realize (in no small part due to the influence of my wife) that beef burgers can be very heavy on the digestive system. So when I discovered 10 easy burger recipes in Mens Health magazine I decided to try substituting mushrooms and tofu instead of beef.
Portabellos offer a similar juicy flavor when seasoned with a little Southwest Smokey Rub. I sauteed the portabellos in light oil, garlic and seasoning. Let the tofu marinade for an hour in Hoison or garlic soy sauce. Sear the tofu so it is slightly brown. I used my wife’s sprouted multi-grain bread lightly toasted. Top with fresh sprouts avocado and shredded cheese or a slice of muenster. I like to spread on a seedy whole grain dijon with mustard seeds. We also had some sweet potato fries on the side. Just slice the sweet potatoes, place on a pan with a little olive oil and sea salt and bake until crispy.
