Smoky Tofu and Red Bean Burgers
1 (14 ounce) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
7 ounces firm tofu, squeezed of excess water and crumbled
1 carrot, grated
1/2 onion, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, minced
handful fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup whole grain breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon all purpose seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, and grease baking sheet. Mash beans in a bowl and add the crumbled tofu.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. I like to use a pastry cutter or fork to help chop and smoosh the mixture which will make it form into patties easier.
3. You may have a taste in order to adjust seasonings. Shape into patties and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes (flipping halfway) or until browned and crispy.
Serve on hamburger buns with grilled onions, lettuce and tomato.
