How to Make Tofu burger

  • In a pan, heat about a tsp of olive oil and saute the onions until soft.
  • Add the mushrooms, cook for another 3-4 minutes and cool slightly.
  • In a food processor, blend 250 gm of the tofu with garlic and cilantro.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Transfer this to a bowl and stir in the onion-mushroom mixture, breadcrumbs, tomato paste, vinegar and hot sauce (or sweet chilli sauce).
  • Grate the remaining tofu and add it to this mixture.
  • Stir until well mixed and then refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Divide this mixture into 6 patties, pressing together well.
  • Coat them well all around with the extra breadcrumbs.
  • In a pan, add some olive oil to coat the pan and shallow fry or pan fry the patties.
  • Preferably you would want 1 cm (1/2 inch) oil in a deep frying pan.
  • Cook them for 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are golden.
  • Make sure to turn them carefully to prevent them from breaking up.
  • Drain on paper towels (you can also season them with salt now).
  • Toast the bread.
  • Spread some mayonnaise on one side of each roll.
  • Layer with tomato slices - as many as you like.
  • Then add the tofu patty and top with spinach/rocket leaves.
  • You can drizzle some more of the chilli sauce.
  • Press it down with another roll with the spread facing below.
  • The burger is all dressed up and ready.
