Chicken and Tofu are low in calories and high in protein. My mother used to make these healthy burgers more nutritious by adding lots of other veggies and mushrooms. I like to eat these burgers with ‘Ponzu’ mixed with grated Daikon Radish and a little bit Chilli. Another healthy sauce is dashi-based soy sauce flavoured sauce that is included in this recipe.


6 Servings


500g Chicken Mince
400 to 500g Firm Tofu *mashed
1 Onion *optional, finely chopped
1 small piece Ginger *grated

  2. Heat small amount of Oil in a frying pan and cook until golden and cooked though.
  3. Place Dashi, Soy Sauce and Mirin in a saucepan and bring it to the boil. Mix Potato Starch with Water and gradually add to the sauce, stirring, until the sauce thickens.
