Blogilates cheap clean eats healthy cheeseburger

Today is my 200th post for 2013! I don't know why, but reaching my 200th post makes the finish line seem so much closer. 

I had a look through my photos from the year and I was so overwhelmed by all the good memories. Even though making sure I have something new to do everyday can become quite stressful, I don't regret starting this project. 

So, for my 200th post, my good friend Nhi and I decided to make another recipe from the Cheap Clean Eats series on the Blogilates website. Today we made the Healthy Cheeseburger recipe.

The original Blogilates recipe makes beef patties, so we decided to make a vegan and non-vegan version. 

I bought some extra firm tofu to make the burger patties, but I recommend using firm silken tofu so that the ingredients can bind together. 

We kinda just winged it for this recipe, but the burgers actually turned out so delicious. We seasoned our burger patties with a store bought Middle Eastern spice blend  and it tasted great with the flavour of the mushrooms and sauce. This is definitely the most guilt-free burger I have ever eaten, and the flavour did not let us down. 

A note to all you people who are keen to try this recipe: it's very very messy. There will be sauce and juice from the mushrooms everywhere, so maybe just eat this with people who don't mind the mess.

Looking very deshellved after cooking, but we were so happy with how these burgers turned out :)
