Tofu Walnut Patties or Burgers

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

* 1/2 block tofu (1/2 pound regular firm)
* 1 cup oatmeal
* 1 cup whole wheat vegan bread crumbs
* 1/3 cup gluten flour
* 1 onion, chopped
* 1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped
* 1 1/2 teaspoons or 1 cube beef-style bouillon
* 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 teaspoons savory or 1 teaspoon sage or use your favorite
* 1 cup water (more or less depending on brand of tofu used)


Crumble tofu into fine pieces, similar to small cottage cheese curds.
Combine oatmeal, vegan bread crumbs, and gluten flour together and add
to tofu. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. (I use my hands.) If
using bouillon cube, dissolve in the water before adding to the mix. Be
careful with the water and add only as much as you need to make a mix
that is not too wet. Form into patties or burgers and fry slowly until
golden brown on both sides or bake on an oil coated cookie sheet in a
350 degree oven for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. This mixture
may also be used for meat balls.

Makes about 24 small patties or about 16 burger patties.

These patties are delicious just as they are or may be served with
gravy or pasta sauce. They make excellent burgers and are great in a
cold sandwich.

Serves: 16-24

Preparation time: 45 minutes
