The last thing that I feel like doing tonight is making dinner but I also don’t want to waste anything that we have in the house so…
We have a brick of tofu to eat-up and I have a batch dough in the fridge that can be made into buns in about 20 seconds flat therefore I won’t be using onion bread like the recipe calls for.
Surprisingly, I do have all of the veg that this recipe calls for. Fingers crossed that they are good!
1/2 lb (225 g) firm tofu, crumbled
1 cup (250 mL) sweet potato, finely grated
3 green onions, minced
1 garlic clove, chopped
4 tsp. (20 mL) each: soy sauce* and tomato paste*
1/4 cup (60 mL) sunflower seeds
2 tsp. (10 mL) dried basil
1 pinch of chili pepper
3 oz (90 g) smooth goat cheese
Salt and ground pepper to taste.
4 onion breads
Preheat barbecue at medium-high.
Mix the first 9 ingredients in a food processor until mixture is homogenous.
Divide the mixture and make four patties, making sure to place the goat cheese at the centre of each one. Note: For firmer patties that are easier to handle, prepare the night before or refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Place the patties on an oiled barbecue grill and cook each side for 5 minutes.
Serve in onion bread and garnish according to taste
