Tofu Cutlet/Tofu Burger #2- vegan

We served these with guacamole, grilled tomatoes and grilled plantain

  My husband literally threw these together for Saturday dinner, and we all loved them, even my burger-hating daughter! They are tasty, light and healthy. I didn't get all the quantities for an exact recipe, but I hope the following notes will do until we make them again- these amounts made 9 burgers/ cutlets.

30g ground peanuts/ almonds
Tofu made with 2l soya milk, curdled then left crumbly, not pressed- see here for how to make
30g porridge oats
30g tahini
seasoning: salt, herbs, paprika
1-2 bell peppers

  • First, make the tofu- or crumble a block of bought firm tofu.
  • Grind the nuts and place in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the crumbly tofu.
  • Add finely shredded/ grated peppers.
  • Add seasonings, oats, tahini and mix thoroughly.
  • Pat into burger/ patty/ cutlet (square) shapes and grill on both sides on an oiled tray.
  • Be sure to make plenty; you will want second helpings!

    1. Good luck with the tofu. Make sure you use unsweetened soya milk. It's like making paneer. IWe use lemon juice but you can use white vinegar too. Let us know how you get on, so we can adjust any of the quantities if necessary. You can use any spice also.
