Scale

Ingredients

  • 14 ounces extra-firm tofu
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • 4 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger (powder)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • TOPPINGS (OPTIONAL)
  • sliced red onion
  • sliced tomatoes
  • arugula
  • ASIAN STYLE BBQ SAUCE
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup Catalina or French dressing
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger (powder)
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Remove excess liquid from tofu by placing it in a colander that is over a bowl to catch the water. Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the tofu. Put something with a little weight on top of the tofu. You can also tightly wrap the tofu in paper towels or a kitchen towel to remove the excess liquid. Let sit for at least 2 hours.
  2. Squeeze any remaining water from the tofu and break it up into the smallest pieces you can into a medium sized bowl. (You want it to look like a bowl of rice or quinoa.)
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and use your hands to really mix the ingredients.
  4. Form 4 to 6 tofu patties.
  5. Place the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the patties over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side. You want them to be a nice golden brown. Remove the patties and place them onto a plate covered with a paper towel to drain the oil. Serve on your choice of bun and toppings.
  6. To make the BBQ sauce: Place ingredients into a small bowl and stir until full combined. Use to top burger.
