(adapted by me from Cooking With Peta)
1 lb. firm tofu, drained, pressed & crumbled
1/2 cup flour
4 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. minced onion
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tbsp. minced jalapeno pepper
(I realize you might not have all these offhand, but this is what I used. Also, use your discretion, as the amounts are not exact)
1/2 tbsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tbsp. cayenne red pepper
1/2 tbsp. chili powder
A bit of: lemon pepper, allspice, (pimento), salt, basil, oregano, cumin, coriander,, cilantro, turmeric
Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. You really just have to suck it up and use your hands to get it all to properly combine. Once it is all one big mess (it will be slightly crumbly still), divide it into 5-6 equal portions, and form each portion into a ball. Flatten out the balls into burger-size patties (using a hamburger mold/press works really well. Coat each side of each pattie in flour. Fry in a pan with about a 1/4 inch of canola oil, for about 5 minutes on the first side at medium high heat, or until golden brown and crispy. Flip the patties, turn the heat down to medium, and fry for about 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Some ideas of what to use the patties for, is a UnChicken NotParmesean Sandwich on a bun (marinara sauce and melted soy cheese on top), or just throw it on a bun with lettuce and a tomato. They can be used for a number of things.
I don’t have any pictures, because they were so fucking delicious that I ate them all!
