Tofu Burgers

Submitted by: Silverwolf

Prep Time: approx. 40 Minutes
Cook Time: approx. 15 Minutes

” This recipe uses tofu that has been frozen for 72 hours and then
quickly defrosted. Onion, celery and cheese make these burgers delicious.
This is a family favorite at the Silverwolfs’ den.
Serve in place of meat as a main entree or place on a bun along with
your favorite toppings: lettuce, onion, tomato, mayo, etc.
These burgers can also be baked in an oven preheated at 350 degrees
for 30 minutes rather than frying. ”

Ingredients
1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions
1 Place tofu in freezer 72 hours ahead of time. To thaw, fill a
large saucepan with water and bring to a simmer. Leave tofu in

2 While tofu is thawing, heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in a small
skillet. Saute onion and celery until soft and lightly browned.

and pepper until thoroughly combined.
