Tofu Burger (豆腐汉堡)



I blog what I ate and I prepared some tofu burger for my family and that is why I take this opportunity to blog this recipe…


I am not the one who started this concept of tofu burger, there are many many websites in the Internet that have such recipes and notably in the Western website…It was designed for vegan or vegetarians who like meatless dish..


Is the tofu burger tasty? I have tried some vegetarian burger in a vegan bar and it is very nice and that is why I have decided to blog this recipe. A Google of vegetarian burger will give you a number of restaurants that served this and prices can be rather steep..


The challenge of vegetarian burger is more on the texture and not really on the flavour itself since one mouthful of the burger will have lots of mix aroma from mayonnaise, vegetables, chilli sauce, cheeses and you can hardly differentiate if it is a real meaty burger or vegetarian burger. Nobody in my family complain about such burger since it was eaten as whole.


This recipe is for octo and lacto vegetarians meaning those vegetarians that can consume diary and egg products. I will share the basic recipe of the burger patty and for the assembly, I will leave it to the readers to design your own . Even for the patty, only the cereal, tofu and eggs are compulsory , there are many alternatives for other ingredients and you can always flavoured your burger differently for each attempt.


As per Wikipedia:

“A veggie burger is a hamburger-style, or chicken-style, patty that does not contain meat, but may contain animal products such as egg or milk. The patty of a veggie burger may be made from vegetables (like corn), textured vegetable protein (like soy), legumes(beans), tofu, nuts, mushrooms, or grains or seeds, like wheat and flax. The patties that are the essence of a veggie burger have existed in various Eurasian cuisines for millennia, including in the form of disc-shaped grilled or fried meatballs or askoftas, a commonplace item in Indian cuisine. Some fast food companies have been offering vegetarian foods increasingly since the beginning of the 21st century. In the United States as of April 2005, veggie burgers were available in Burger King restaurants and those of its franchise Hungry Jack’s. As of that same time, they were also available in certain Subways and Harvey’s, as well as many chain restaurants, such as Red Robin, Chili’s, Denny’s, Friendly’s, Culvers, Johnny Rockets, and Hard Rock Cafe. Occasionally the veggie burger option will appear at the bottom of a menu as a possible substitution for beef or turkey burgers, rather than as an individual menu item.’ (Source:

  • Pulse blend cashew nuts, capsicums, and shitake mushrooms until coarse form. Add the firm tofu, dark soya sauce, black better, sugar, oregano, salts, instant oatmeal and eggs. Blend until well mixed. Take a small teaspoon and taste the raw batter. Adjust the seasoning if necessary.

  • In a non stick pan with some oil, put 1-2 tablespoons of tofu patties, pan fry the patties until both side are well cooked and reached your desired tone. The batter will harden when cook, it is considered as cook when a tooth pick insert into the centre of patties come out clean.

  • To assemble, you can consider added cheese, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato and cucumber to the veggie burger.



This is my own recipe and I like the taste very much. Having said that, variations are many, you can add whatever things you liked such as basil, celery or other types of ingredients and come out your unique version. It is advisable that you do not change the instant oatmeal, egg and tofu ratio so as to maintain a texture that is like the real meat patty.


Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.
