Recipe by Cilantro in Canada
This recipe comes from The New McDougall Cookbook. I have added BBQ to the recipe and left out the parsley for personal taste. I am not fully versed yet in the Mcdougall diet so I am unsure if the addition of the BBQ sauce is allowed. It does add a lot of flavour though. The original recipe also called for the burgers to be browned in a 350 oven for 30 minutes flipping at the 20 minute mark. I use a fry pan and lightly spray with pam. Again I am unsure if Pam is allowed on the Mcdougall plan. My 18 year old son loves these burgers and will often take them to school for his lunch. They reheat very well. For a tofu burger they are actually quite good.

couldn't decide what to eat for lunch and had tofu in the fridge, whipped this up in minutes and it tastes great! i changed out the seasonings with what i had on hand and used the bbq sauce i had. you can make these to whatever flavor you want. my only regret is that i didn't make a cheese burger this time :) thanks for sharing.
