Veggie burger that tastes great, is easy to prepare, and is healthy.
1. Mash the tofu and red beans together with the other ingredients.
2. Form into about four patties.
3. Cook in a skillet coated with oil. The oats will help hold the patties together well, so they can be cooked on an open grill with some care.
Veggie burgers are like soup or chili in that the ingredients can change based on whatever you happen to have in the kitchen that day. Onions, mushrooms, and even some diced veggies can be added for different flavor and texture. If serving to omnivores, you might want to keep it simple. They can be a bit snarky about tofu from the start.
You can try some paprika to help darken and flavor the tofu. A touch of liquid smoke could help too.
Use the red pepper powder with care. You want just a fraction of a pinch to wake up the flavor without giving it to much of a bite.
For the oats, you can substitute bread crumbs, but its easier and cheaper to pour in a couple of ounces of roll oats from a packet of instant or from your bulk bin.
With these simple ingredients, it is pretty easy to make it all organic.
