3 burgers + 1 tofu burger + buns

Ever since the day before Year 1, my daughter has been a vegetarian. I admire her perseverance... I'm a wannabe vegetarian but the lure of the hamburger on the BBQ is too tempting for me. Pictured is a typical compromise. When I grill hamburgers I also cook Soyco tofu which comes in a range of marinades (Japanese, Malaysian peanut satay, Chinese honey soy, Thai).

If we have meat for a meal, she can choose to substitute with this tofu or a tin of beans. And she does -- cheerfully, even if the beans are dumped cold and unceremoniously onto her plate. She inspires us to eat more vegetarian meals.
