Help me with my un-chicken patties!

I made these from the Peta cookbook for lunch. I made a few adjustments, but the flavor is still uber-bland. The texture is very good. They get crispy on the outside, but it needs something. What would *you* add to this recipe to make it more delicious?

Un-Chicken Patties
(adapted by me from Cooking With Peta)

1 lb. firm tofu, drained, pressed & crumbled
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. vegetable bouillion powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper

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 six equal portions, and form each portion into a ball. Flatten out the balls into burger-size patties. Fry in a pan lightly sprayed with oil, for about 5-8 minutes per side on medium to medium to medium high. The outsides should be golden brown and quite crispy.

The original recipe had these differences:

1 tbsp. grated onion instead of powder - I can't stand onions to eat, I just like the flavor.
1/4 cup wheat germ in place of half of the flour. But the texture is fine, so I don't care.
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning instead of the bouillion. I didn't have any of that.
