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.

Wellness Tip
Pasta Sauce
Did you know that some jars of pasta sauces contain up to 32 grams of fat per serving! Use the Nutrition Label to compare brands. Consider choosing tomato-based sauces vs. cheese-based sauces, opting for one with 3 grams of fat per serving or less.

Recipe
Crispy Baked Asian Blackberry Chicken Wings
Category: Main Meals
Description: There are few occasions when I’d argue that “baked” rules over “deep-fried.” But believe it or not, a piping hot oven—and not a vat of bubbling oil—is the secret to the crispiest, crackliest chicken wings. And with just five ingredients and 50 minutes, you’ll be licking your fingers clean for every last taste of these Crispy Baked Asian Chicken Wings. Sound too good to be true?
I consider myself a bit of a wing connoisseur. Buffalo, chipotle, teriyaki, barbecue—you name it, I’ve winged it. While it’s hard to beat basic butter and hot sauce, I’ve turned to my favorite hoisin and blackberry jam glaze (of mini-meatball fame) to add a sweet and tangy twist to each crunchy bite. I guarantee these wings will fly off the plate. (You had to know that was coming…)

Much like spinach, raisins, apples, plums and grapes, blackberries are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C, but other nutritional benefits include a very low sodium count and having only 62 calories to a cup. The dark blue colour ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits.

In Canada, blackberries are seasonal fruits and the availability of a fresh batch depends on whether you live in the North or the South. They make great jams.
