TOFU BURGERS

TOFU BURGERS

When I made the Tofu Nuggets recipe by Tofuture (amazing btw), I wondered if it could be altered to create Tofu Burgers and it can!  I wanted a beefy type burger on a bun with all the trimmings; gherkins, avocado, tomato, jalapeños, lettuce and sauce.   Burgers are one of my favourite things and I’ve tried many vegan supermarket options, some of which are great (Linda McCartney’s ¼ Pounders), some are OK (Asda’s own brand burgers) but most are what omnis may call “cardboardy”  (fair comment as its true though).  My other burger recipe offers a different texture to these Tofu Burgers but both hit the burger spot!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 block firm smoked tofu – use the Tofuture press for 20 minutes to get rid of excess water
  • 80g chickpea flour
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp hot pepper sauce
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp marmite
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp sage
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 red onion
  1. Add all the ingredients to a processor and whizz until smooth.
  2. Take a frying pan and fill with a little rapeseed oil and wait for it to get hot.
  3. Dollop a spoonful of the mixture in (it will be quite wet at this stage)
  4. Wait for 10 seconds and then flatten with the back of a spoon to make a burger shape.
  5. Fry for 1 minute, flip over and fry the other side for 1 minute.
  6. Transfer to a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 40 minutes @ 200.
  7. Serve on a bun with your favourite burger toppings
