Wayne calls this the “1996 Veggie Burger.” It is fundamentally an outdated-faculty hippie burger. I adore them for a several explanations. Initial, they’re grill-ready. 2nd, they are built from components I realize – natural tofu, seeds, nuts, eggs, spices, and breadcrumbs.

The Recipe

On the cooking front, I have been cleansing out some drawers. Largely likely through old magazine clippings (which is section of the reason I’ve been featuring extra journal motivated recipes than typical). I have been discovering lots of gems, and these tofu burgers jumped out at me. I’ve adapted them from a reader contributed recipe that ran in the Oct 2004 difficulty of Sunset Magazine. The recipe was sent to Sunset by Jeremy Wolf of San Francisco, and I enjoyed them so substantially! They were impossibly effortless to make, relying on the “throw every little thing in the food processor” technique, and identified as for a quirky mix of elements ranging from tofu, seeds, and nuts, to mustard, cumin, and mushrooms. In the decades considering that, I have performed a whole lot of variants, and I am going to speak through a several of them beneath.

I will say, I suspect you will be tempted to tweak the seasonings, and you should! But this is my assistance. Never skimp on the cumin or mustard, you require some assertive flavors to kick in – hold in mind you happen to be working with ground tofu and eggs as a burger foundation. Whichever you do believe daring!
