We don’t know why, but for whatever reason you may have, there might come a day when you’ll just tire of shoving burgers down your throat.
This lighter, healthier version of yesterday’s recipe might just surprise you with the same degree of deliciousness, but with less of the fat. Here at Pepper.ph, we love loading our recipes with calories galore, but this dish is actually a great alternative for those who are watching their weight. Actually, you don’t even have to be on a diet to enjoy this. Omnomnomnom.
The key to this tofu recipe is to use the Bulldog brand of tonkatsu sauce, and Kewpie for the mayonnaise. The savory-salty taste of the sauce balances out the silky soya flavor of the tofu. Pork floss can be purchased in most groceries, and it works as a nice, flaky topping to this dish. Not to mention, the play of textures you get from all the ingredients combined.
Eating tofu doesn’t guarantee weight loss. If you eat several of these in one sitting for the entire week, you’ll achieve the same result as you would with burgers. Just saying.
