Vegetarian Tofu Burger

Mixed Herbs Bread Roll with Vegetarian Tofu Patties...believe me this burger is actually rather small ^0^

Ingredients for making tofu burger patties : pressed tofu, carrots, abalone mushroom, water chestnut, black fungus

Stir-fried the carrots, mushroom, water chestnut & black fungus, after then mix in with rolled oats and pressed tofu to form patties

Vegetarian Tofu Patties
Recipe ref : Yum Yum Magazine Feb 2014 
  • 50gm abalone mushroom, diced
  • 20gm softened black fungus, diced
  • 60gm carrots, finely grated
  • 3 water chestnut, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp rolled oat, toasted
  • 1 firmed tofu, drained and mashed
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • bread crumbs for coating

  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in pan. Saute mushroom, fungus, carrots and water chestnut till fragrant. Add in seasoning and stir fry till mixture is fairly dried. Dish up and cool down slightly.
  2. Combine mushroom mixture with rolled oats, mashed tofu and egg white and mix evenly. Divide mixture into small portions and shape into ball, flatten to form patty. Coat patty with some breadcrumbs.
  3. Meanwhile in a clean pan, heat some olive oil. Pan-fry the patty on medium low heat until golden brown on both sides. 

Unlike the usual soft fluffy bread roll, this hearty bread roll are packed with sugee flour, rye flour and mixed herbs! It is soft and has a slightly chewy texture, and I really loved the nutty flavour. The kids loved to smear them thickly with butter, but I've chosen to sandwich with the vegetarian tofu patty, perfect matched! ^0^
