Nutritious Soya and Veggie Burgers/ Healthy Kids Recipe


Kids love burgers and home made veggie burgers are a healthier alternative to shop bought ones. Soy chunks and Paneer/ Indian Cottage Cheese add protein to the high fiber veggie patties and thus these burgers can be a part of healthy eating plan too! Use of whole wheat burger buns and addition of sprouts in the patties make them a nutrition powerhouse. What's more? The burger patties are shallow fried and not deep fried, also the recipe does not call for use of mayonnaise or cornflour. This dish is surely a great way to disguise vegetables . This Soya and Veggie burger is a quick snack that you can 'grab on the go' and enjoy without any guilt. Very easy to make, is healthy and full of flavor.

This is an old post that i had published in 2015 during my early blogging days. Today, i have updated the post with new pics, written content and video, the recipe remains unchanged though. I have many such old posts where i feel the photography is dull or the recipe is not up to the mark (at times we keep on changing our own recipes to make it a better version of it). Such posts need to be updated. All thanks to my dear friend and a fellow blogger Renu, who came up with a Facebook gourmet group, Foodies_redoing Old posts, wherein a group of passionate food bloggers can update their old posts with new photographs and written content fortnightly. The pic below is my old pic of soya veg burger. One can make out the difference between the old and the new pic and the food styling .
