These Delectable Vegetarian Patties are so fluffy and delicious. Who wants to buy store-made when making it by scratch is actually very simple? Tofu is a favorite protein in my family, containing all nine essential amino acids. It is a good source of iron, calcium, and the minerals magnesium, copper, zinc, and Vitamin B1. It is a perfect vegetarian recipe that is in no way bland and great for a mid-week family meal. We serve ours with a garden salad, but you could also add bread to the outside if you wanted to eat it burger-style.
