DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet, until tender. Drain the rice.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy frypan and cook off the onion and garlic over a low heat, stir occassionally, for about 5 minutes. The onion should be softened and golden.
  • Meanwhile, spread out the peanuts on a baking sheet and toast under a preheated grill (broiler) for a few minutes, until browned. Alternately, you can toast the peanuts using a dry pan on the stove top- keep them moving while heating.
  • Place the toasted peanuts, onion, garlic, rice, crumbled tofu, coriander and parsley (can use just 1/2 cup or either cilantro or parsley if wished) in a food processor. Add a little salt and pepper to seson if desired. Process until the mixture forms a thick paste. If it is too thick, add a little water.
  • Divide the mixture into eight equal portions and form each mound into a cutlet, flat square or burger shape.
  • Heat the olive oil on a large, heavy frypan.
  • Add the cutlets and cook for about 5-10 minutes on each side, until they turn golden brown and are heated through. THis step can be done in two batches if needed.
  • Drain the cutlets on kitchen paper. Can be kept warm in the oven if cooking in two or more batches.
  • Serve and enjoy.
