It’s been a beautiful morning here in the UK. We took advantage of it by potting some vegetable seeds in the garden. Can’t wait to have an abundance of delicious home grown veggie’s. We opted for a quick lunch today as didn’t want to miss out on any of the sunshine. We decided on tofu burgers. I’ve never made burgers with tofu before but these turned out to be really nice. We found this recipe by Jamie Oliver, click here. I did amend slightly and because I’m lazy put all my ingredients in the food processor. I also added 2 spring onions and 1 red chilli; we didn’t add the egg as once blitzed up I felt it didn’t need it. We also added rolled oats instead of breadcrumbs and added some salt and pepper. I served mine in a multi-grain flatbread and topped with salsa and salad, you can top with whatever you like. If following the slimming world plan like I am, I used the oats as my healthy extra and added 5 1/2 syns for my flatbread.
Ingredients I used (this will serve 2-4 depending how big you want your burgers):
- 396g pack of tofu. Squeeze as much liquid out as possible and wrap in a clean tea towel with heavy plate on top to drain out more water.
- 1/2 cup/50g rolled oats or whole-grain breadcrumbs
- 2 spring onions
- 1 red chilli
- 2 tsp of marmite
I blitzed in the food processor and then made into 4 patties dusting lightly with flour. Bake in the oven at 150c until golden or pan fry in a little frylight.
