Veggie burgers are an awesome thing to have at a barbecue, when everyone is sitting around talking, drinking, and cooking on the grill. However, they are a bit time consuming. While I was in Slovakia, my friend taught me this quick and easy way to make a vegan sandwich filler. You can also chop it into pieces and throw it on a salad. Enjoy!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 6-8 minutes
- 360 g of firm or semi-firm tofu, coarsely grated
- dash of soy sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 75 g of breadcrumbs
- flour (for binding)
- pinch of dill (more to taste)
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 2 tsp olive oil
Quickly rinse tofu, then grate coarsely into a bowl. Crush 3 garlic gloves and add to bowl. Add soy sauce, breadcrumbs, and seasonings to the bowl, then mix with a spoon. Add flour pinch by pinch until you are able to form sticky patties.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Place patties in the pan, and turn over after a few minutes/when golden brown. Top with veggies and condiments of your choice-I recommend hot sauce and onions-and eat on its own or as a sandwich.
Yields 6 patties
