Posted by on

Believe it or not, this tofu burger is far from bland. In fact, you might even agree with us that it's tastier than a conventional beef burger!

Makes about 6 burgers! 

Ingredients 

For the tofu burger: 
  • 400g firm tofu 
  • 100g breadcrumbs (use GF if necessary, or make from any kind of bread) 
  • Salt & pepper to taste 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
For the sauce: 
  • 1 medium onion, sliced 
  • 230ml tinned tomatoes

    • In a bowl, combine the tofu with the breadcrumbs, salt & pepper by hand 
    • Divide the mixture into 6 parts and flatten to make the patties
    • Heat up olive oil in a frying pan and place the patties in the pan

    For the sauce:
