Guys, these are seriously the easiest and tastiest burgers I've ever made, and I have a thing for tasty, healthy burgers. So much so that I have not one, but three gluten free vegan burger recipes on the blog. This will be the fourth!
They're so simple to make and ingredients are minimal. They're great for a quick, healthy meal, particularly if you pair them with my Baked Root Vegetable Fries.
And smoked paprika lends the burgers a smoky BBQ flavour that is super addictive.
Here's how easy these burgers are:
Slices of drained, organic, extra firm tofu
Dredged in a seasoning mix and fried on both sides until golden brown
I like them smothered in my my Homemade BBQ Sauce which also happens to make an excellent dip for fries.
Ingredients for Vegan, Gluten Free Tofu Patties
1 package organic extra firm tofu
1/2 cup white rice flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1. Wrap tofu block in a clean towel and drain for twenty minutes. I do this with the tofu sandwiched between two plates, and a heavy book on top to weigh the top plate down. Slice tofu into patties approximately 1/4" thick.
2. Sift together flour, salt, paprika, and garlic powder and blend. Dredge the tofu through the flour mix to coat both sides.
3. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry tofu on one side for 5 minutes, until golden brown. Flip and fry on second side for another 3-5 minutes.
And you're done!
Of course, you can always serve it topped with my Homemade BBQ Sauce and alongside my Baked Root Vegetable Fries
