    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    patties

    Units: US | Metric

    • 30 ounces tofu
    • 1/3 cup grated carrot
    • 1/4 cup minced leek, , scallions,or onions
    • 2 tablespoons ground roasted sesame seeds or 2 tablespoons ground roasted peanuts
    • oil (for frying)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut tofu into thin slices and arrange between two layers of dishtowel.
    2. 2
      Let stand for 15 minutes, then put firm pieces in the middle of a dry dishtowel, gather the corners, twist to form a sack, and squeeze tofu firmly to drain off as much moisture as possible.
    3. 3
      In a shallow bowl, combine tofu with carrot, leeks, and sesame seeds.
    4. 4
      Knead, as if kneading bread, for about 3 minutes.
    5. 5
      When dough is smooth and holds together well, moisten palms with oil and shape dough into patties, 3 to 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
    6. 6
      Pour oil into a wok (to a depth of 1 1/2 inches) or skillet (to a depth of 1/4 to 12 inch).
    7. 7
      Heat oil to 375 degrees F.
    8. 8
      Fry burgers until crisp and nicely browned, about 4minutes on one side, 3 minutes on the other.
    9. 9
      Drain and serve hot.

      I followed the directions exactly and found these bland and mushy. I ended up adding quinoa flour, wheat germ, hot sauce and other spices to give it a bit of bulk and flavor. Even then, it was so-so and having to fry the burgers (and you do) was off-putting. I appreciate the post but think better cooks than I could probably do a better revision.
