Tofu Burger

Tofu Burger
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb firm or extra firm tofu
  • ¼ cup minced onions
  • ¼ cup minced green pepper
  • ¼ cup shredded carrots
  • ¼ cup diced mushrooms
  • ¼ cup ground sunflower seeds
  • 2 TBSP ground sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp sea salt​​​​
  • 1-2 TBSP tamari or soy sauce
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • Whole wheat flour
  1. Press and drain tofu.
  2. Mash with fork and knead as you would, dough.
  3. Combine veggies, seasonings and oil and continue to knead for several minutes.
  4. If needed, add a little whole wheat flour to hold mixture together.
  5. Moisten palms with oil or water and form into balls, sprinkle with flour and flatten between palms. Heat oil in large skillet and fry over medium heat until brown on both sides.
  6. You can also bake them.
  7. Feel free to substitute your favorite seasonings e.g. basil, oregano, chili.
Sprinkle formed patties with a little flour and paprika before pan frying. Patties can also be baked. They are delicious with your favorite toppings on a bun. For a breakfast meal, I use sage seasoning and serve as a veggie sausage. For a dinner meal, the tofu burger can be paired with a green vegetable and sweet potatoes or rice pilaf.
