Tofu Hamburg Steak with Onion Mushroom Sauce

When I was a kid, I loved hamburg steak, which is a thick version of patty. When I cut into a bite size, the juice came out like a flood and even after I brought them on my mouth, still the flood was going on in my mouth and gave full of tasty flavor. 

But now I’m trying to switch my diet to vegetarian(currently pescatarian) so the last time I ate hamburg was like…when was that…more than 5 years ago? Wow it’s a long time ago, but  sometimes my old memory comes back and I want to cook some nice hamburg steak. 

Although this is a meat-less food, using tofu can give us nice fluffy hamburg steak! Although being Vegan is a little hard for me, today’s recipe is a vegan recipe! So if you are vegan/trying to be vegan, try it!
