Herb Crusted Tofu Burger

This recipe has high amount of protein in it and it was a filling meal by itself..The marination for the tofu worked so well ,since the tofu is bland, it absorbed all the acidic marination and came out so flavourful..It you want it to be much healthier,you could add lettuce leaves,onion and tomato slices to it...But I kept it plain and simple..You could even substitute tofu with paneer also.You could also add some chopped coriander/mint/basil to the breadcrumbs
