Smoked Tofu Burgers…with a sprinkle of Seaweed Nutrition Benefits. They are ideal for a fresh sunny meal and the perfect dish for a BBQ.

 

Ingredients

This recipe include 1/4 tsp of our PureSea Natural

1 block smoked tofu
1 clove crushed garlic
1 small red onion, minced
1 cup diced Portobello mushrooms
¼ cup coriander (leaves only) minced

1 small red pepper (deseeded) minced
¼ tsp of paprika (smoked if preferred)
¼ tsp of turmeric
¼ tsp ginger powder
¼ tsp Seaweed

 

2 tbsp. Clearspring shoyu or tamari

2 cup light breadcrumbs
(Panko organic)

Sunflower or sesame oil for frying

Method

Drain the tofu and press excess liquid out with paper towels. Crumble the tofu into a bowl. Add the garlic, chopped onions, to a heavy based pan and sweat over a low heat. Stir in the mushrooms, coriander, red pepper, turmeric, paprika, ginger powder and seaweed. Mix well and continue to cook for around 5 minutes then stir in the shoyu or tamari.

Remove from the heat and add to the tofu. Stir in the breadcrumbs and mix until you have consistency that sticks together well. (I prefer to use my hands to squeeze the mixture together). If too dry add a little water if too wet add some wholegrain flour. Shape mixture into 4 large burgers or 8 small ones.

In a heavy based frying pan, add the oil and set the heat to medium/low. Panfry the burgers till crisp and golden brown on both sides. Serve on a bed of fresh organic salad greens, top with some vegan mayonnaise and complement the dish with a side of sprouts and Arame sea vegetable.
