Homemade veggie burgers, ingredients
200 grams of tofu
1/2 stick of celery
1 white onion
1 clove of garlic
Grated wholemeal bread
A handful of almonds
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of fresh chives
1 tablespoon Edible yeast
1 tablespoon of curry
Salt to taste.
Homemade veggie burgers, preparation
Clean the carrot and cut it into small pieces, do the same with the garlic and onion
With the help of a mixer, chop the tofu, add the celery, carrot, onion, garlic, almonds, sesame, soy sauce
Mix everything until you get a well-blended dough
In a non-stick pan, fry everything with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil for about 5 minutes, taking care to stir occasionally with a wooden spoon to prevent the mixture from sticking
Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture to a bowl
At this point, add the chives, parsley, oregano, nutritional yeast, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of oil, curry
Knead well with your hands for a few nibuto: if the mixture is still very soft you can add more breadcrumbs
Put a thick-bottomed pan on the heat and with the help of a lightly oiled pastry cutter, form burgers by pressing them a little: alternatively you can create meatballs and flatten them a little with the palm of your hand, the shape will be less perfect but the result it will still be great
Cook over low heat for 10 minutes then, when they are golden brown, turn them very gently and cook for another 10 minutes
Transfer them to a serving dish and wait for them to cool before serving to give the burgers time to firm up further, so they will taste even better.
How to serve them: they are excellent accompanied by fresh seasonal vegetables, but they can be placed between 2 slices of wholemeal bread with a few lettuce leaves and 2 slices of tomato.
