Recipe: Tofu Burger

This tofu burger recipe makes a great burger.  Zac made it tonight. It’s far lighter than the traditional beef burger and I loved the various textures that combined, delivered a mouth-watering experience.

tofu burger


1 lb extra firm tofu

1/4 cup  whole wheat flour,

1/4 cup fine cornmeal 

1/4 cups quick oats

1/2 c parsley tops or fresh basil leaves, washed & dried

1 tsp each paprika, coriander, cumin

1/2 tsp dried basil or thyme

1/4 tsp ginger

pinch cayenne

1/2 tsp salt


Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium with olive oil, or your favorite cooking oil

Add a pinch of asafetida (hing) or a crushed garlic clove to the oil for extra flavor

Cut tofu into 1 inch chunks, and add to food processor

If you don’t have one, mash by hand or with a potato masher, and finely chop the parsley or basil first

Throw in everything else and mix well by hand, or on low in the food processor just until it all clumps up

Form into eight 3 – 4 inch patties

Fry in small amount of oil, on medium heat, 5-7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown
