Tofu Burger with Herbs 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Slices of frozen tofu provide the "chewiness" associated with a truly good burger. The dark marinade lends a "meaty" flavor and moist juices. This "burger" has the chewy texture and juiciness associated with a truly good hamburger. Serve on sprouted rolls with tofu mayonnaise.

Ingredients:
2 lbs. medium-firm or firm tofu (NOT silken tofu), frozen at least 48 hours

Marinade:
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons soy sauce (regular or mushroom)
2 tablespoons ketchup (fruit-juice sweetened, cane-sugar sweetened, or organic)
2 teaspoons Marmite, Vegemite or other yeast extract (gives a “beefy” flavor) or 4 teaspoons red miso
1/4 teaspoon garlic granules
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried parsely
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Serve on buns with all the trimmings.


Directions:
1. Thaw out the tofu. Slice each pound block into three thick slices. Place the slices on a cookie sheet covered with a couple of clean, folded tea towels. Cover the slices with more tea towels and another cookie sheet. Weigh this arrangement down with something heavy for about 15-20 minutes. Now the tofu slices are ready for marinating.

2. Mix the marinade ingredients together and pour over the prepared tofu slices in a shallow container in one layer. Cover and let marinate for several hours or days.

3. Just before serving, pan-fry on a lightly-oiled heavy skillet or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned on both sides. Or cook on an indoor grill.

Serve on buns with all the trimmings.


Servings: Makes 6 large burgers


Notes: Recipe is based on from "The Almost No-Fat Cookbook" by Bryanna Clark Grogan (The Book Publishing Co., 1994) Check your condiment and sauce labels to ensure that it is gluten free.

How to Eat the Healthiest and Sustainable Fish

Recipe
Lighter Bran Muffins
Category: Desserts
Description: Compared to the buttery, icing-piped white scones and tartlets in the pastry case, the bran muffin always seems like the obvious choice for the hungry healthy-breakfast browser. The bran adds a good bit of fiber and a little protein, too. But most bakery batters are made fluffy with white flour and sweetened with enough sugar to cover four glazed donuts—a 400-plus-calorie breakfast with more than 70g of carbs, most from refined sources like white flour and brown sugar. And the portion size? These muffins are enormous. Our mission: Bring the bran muffin back into balanced territory with 100% whole grains and no refined sugar—but still keep it moist and packed with flavour.
