Tofu Burger Patties

Tonight I made Vegan Tofu Burger Patties

tofu patties 004 tofu patties 005 I didn’t have any nutritional yeast so I left it out but I would definitely recommend you use at least cheese if you don’t have any because otherwise they come out quite bland. I also didn’t have any sunflower seeds (because I used them all making vegan oatmeal biscuits) so I used Chia seeds instead 🙂 I probably wouldn’t make these again as they fall apart quite easily and the tofu is quite bland. If I did though I would probably cook the onion and garlic in a fry pan first until it’s soft and THEN make the patties, and also I would make sure I had nutritional yeast to add or if I wasn’t making them Vegan, use cheese instead. They could definitely use the added flavour kick.

Next time I buy tofu I’m going to make vegan cream cheese instead. Speaking of which, my Red Velvet Cupcakes have been a hit!! I made 32 and now have six left haha, which leaves me with the dilemma of the fact that I’ve promised my friends I’ll give them some. I’m going to make a new batch tonight or tomorrow but without adding food colouring. Mum seriously detests adding food colouring and believes it bitters the taste, so just to keep her happy I’ll make them without in which case they’ll no longer be red velvet 😦

Today I ordered the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World from the Whitcoulls which should arrive in the next two weeks!! I’m really excited 😀


When it arrives I will spend my entire holidays creating the delicious treats within the pages.. I’m content just thinking about it 🙂

Have a great night everyone!

Love Yoga

Today I went to town on a little mission and returned home happily with a new sports bra, a yoga DVD, a cute little notebook to write recipes in and a book on Hot Yoga that I borrowed from the public library.

Also, last night I mentioned I borrowed a yoga/Pilates book from a friend? This is it:

yoga 006 I think I’m pretty much set to embrace yoga 100%!!!

I tried the beginners level of the yoga DVD I bought and it was HARD!! I’m happy I decided to do that level first because level 2 would’ve kicked my butt. Despite how challenging it was I really really enjoyed it. I felt so good and so relaxed the whole time and I really felt as though I’d been pushed to a suitable limit and I was happy with the way my body felt afterwards. It had a good combination of sun salutations and other poses like warrior etc and it was all very free-flowing. Tonight I think I’ll do the level again in the lounge by the fire “hot yoga” style and see if I can get through it without dying!!

yoga 016 yoga 019 I think I’ll keep doing level 1 until it doesn’t hurt and I don’t fall over during some of the more challenging moves. The DVD was a bargain for $7 and I think I’m going to buy a couple more once I’ve mastered this one.

Tonight I’m making tofu burgers for my family for dinner which I’ll photograph and then blog about later with the recipe.

Have a good evening!

Hey there, my name's Jenny. I have a huge passion for cooking/baking, writing, yoga and photography. I love nature and my favourite thing to do is spend an entire day outside, breathing in crisp, fresh air. Even better if I have a pen and paper with me. I started out running in March 2009 but sustained an injury in October 2009 which has unfortunately prevented me from running. I've been experimenting with other kinds of exercise to find another one that clicks. Follow me on my journey to maintaining good health + surviving high school and pursuing a career in Journalism. I Hope you enjoy reading my blog!
