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

Wellness Tip
Adequate Water Intake
Adequate water intake prevents your body from overheating. It is also required for normal metabolism. By the time you feel thirsty, you may already have lost 2% or more of your body weight in fluid. At 4%, loss of both strength and endurance can occur. A recent Institute of Medicine report stated that women on average would need just over 11, eight ounce cups of water per day (from both liquids and watery foods), men just under 16 cups. If you are very active or live in a hot or dry climate, you likely need more.

Roast Turkey Roll Stuffed With Fruit, Nuts and Camembert Stuffing
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: Holiday Dinner all rolled into one.
There are about 32g of protein in a 4-oz. serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids. Just one serving of turkey provides 65 percent of your recommended daily intake of protein.
Protect Yourself From Cancer. A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention. Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system. Selenium also has an essential role to play in your antioxidant defense system, helping to eliminate cancer-friendly free radicals in the body. Get Your B Vitamins. Turkey is considered a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, rated because of the density of these vitamins in the meat. A serving of turkey meat has 36 percent of the daily allowance of B3 and 27 percent of your recommended intake of B6. Benefit From Less Saturated Fat. Saturated fat is necessary for biological functions, hormone production, padding for organs and energy. While saturated fat is necessary for a healthy body, most moderately-active people need to avoid overindulging. Turkey has under 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat per 4-oz. serving.
Choose Organic, Pasture-Based Turkey
Grass-fed turkey raised under organic conditions convey the most health benefits. Grass-fed turkeys offer higher nutrition and are superior to birds given antibiotics or raised without access to natural pasture. Consider looking for a local, grass-based poultry farm when shopping for organic turkeys.
