Gently Curried Tofu Burgers

Tofu cubed and mashed

These mildly spiced vegan tofu burgers can be served on burger rolls with all of your favorite condiments. Or, serve them on their own as a side dish for grain, potato, or pasta dishes. Young children may enjoy eating these out of hand at room temperature.

Makes: about 1 dozen, 1 or 2 per serving

  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • One 16-ounce tub soft tofu, drained well and finely crumbled
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ or quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning blend (such as Frontier or Mrs. Dash)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder, or to taste
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Olive oil or other vegetable oil for sauté pan

Place the oatmeal in a medium-sized mixing bowl and cover with 1/2 cup boiling water. Let stand 5 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients except the oil to the mixing bowl and stir together until completely combined.

Heat enough oil to coat a wide nonstick skillet or griddle. Ladle the tofu mixture onto the skillet in 1/4-cup portions and flatten. Cook the patties on both sides over medium heat until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve warm or at room temperature.

    Did not form well. Turned into mush when I tried to fry

    Sorry this didn’t work well for you. I will revisit the recipe and see what needs fixing. Perhaps these would be better baked. Thank you for your honest feedback.
