Vegetarian Meal - Tofu & Vegetable Burgers
Tofu is made from soya beans. It is high in protein and low in saturated fats. Tofu is also a good source of calcium, which is essential for a vegetarian meal . The combination of tofu, cashew nuts and vegetables makes these tasty burgers very nutritious.
Nuts are great for vegetarians as they supply many of the nutrients usually found in animal sources. Honey roasted cashew nuts make a good snack for older children. Combining cashew nuts with tofu, as in this recipe, makes for a good source of protein.
