Tofu Burgers

Mum gave me this recipe last week. The patties are really delicious and are fantastic with salad and a little bit of chutney. I also wrapped a burger in lettuce instead of a bun and added a few condiments. DELICIOUS! This recipe makes 8 large burger patties.

450g of organic extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry, then sliced
2 large eggs
1/2 cup of gluten-free rice crumbs
1/2 cup of cashew nuts
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of tamari or wheat-free soy sauce
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of olive oil

1. Place all the ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture comes together and is not too chunky. If it seems a bit thin, add a handful of rice crumbs at a time until everything comes together.
2. Divide the mixture into eight equal portions and use your hands to press firmly and form into round but flat-ish patties.
3. Pour the olive oil into your largest frypan over medium-high heat, and arrange as many patties as you can without crowding. Cover, and cook turning once, until deeply browned on both sides. It will take roughly ten minutes. Make sure the middle of the patties cook through.
4. Serve with your favorite burger or salad ingredients.
