Gently Curried Tofu Burgers
These mildly spiced patties can be served on burger buns with all of your favorite condiments. Or, serve them on their own as a side dish for grain, potato, or pasta dishes. Young children may enjoy eating these out of hand at room temperature.
1/4 cup oats
1 (16-ounce) tub soft tofu, drained well and finely crumbled
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt-free all-purpose seasoning (such as Spike or Mrs. Dash)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon curry powder, to taste
1 scallion (green onion), minced, or 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives (optional)
Salt to taste
- Place the oats in a medium-sized mixing bowl and cover with 1/2 cup boiling water. Let stand 5 minutes.
- Add the remaining ingredients except the oil to the mixing bowl and stir together until completely combined.
- Heat enough oil to coat a wide nonstick skillet or griddle. Ladle the tofu mixture onto the skillet in 1/4-cup portions and flatten. Cook the patties on both sides over medium heat until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve warm or at room temperature.
Makes about 1 dozen.
