Purists may feel this is stretching the burger description but, thanks to the wasabi mayo, it's extremely tasty. It's also a good way to achieve that New Year's resolution to eat less meat.

WASABI TOFU BURGERS

4 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp wasabi paste
400g firm tofu, sliced
Vegetable oil
4 slices flat bread
1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced lengthways
1 cucumber, thinly sliced lengthways
1 avocado, sliced
100g snow pea sprouts
2 Tbsp pickled ginger

    1. Preheat a barbecue or grill to high.

    2. Mix mayonnaise and wasabi together.

    3. Drizzle tofu with a little oil and grill to heat through.

    4. Lay bread out and spread with mayonnaise. Layer carrot, cucumber, tofu, avocado, sprouts and top with ginger before wrapping up the flat bread and finishing on the barbecue for one minute each side before serving.
