DIRECTIONS

  • Pour boiling water over arame and soak for 2 minutes. Drain well.
  • Put scallions in food processor and pulse a few times until minced. Transfer to large bowl. Put seaweed and half the tofu into processor and pulse a couple of times until just crumbled. Add to bowl.
  • Put remaining tofu into processor and let it run until tofu is smooth. Add to bowl with crumbs, sesame seeds, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper, hot sauce, garlic powder, a little salt and lots of pepper. Stir well to combine. Form into patties. Let rest a few minutes. (Burger mixture or shaped burgers can be covered tightly and refrigerated for up to a day. Bring back to room temperature before cooking.).
  • Put oil in large nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron skillet, turn heat to medium. After a minute or 2, slip burgers into pan with spatula. Cook, undisturbed, until browned and easily moved, about 5 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until done, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  • Serve over rice, noodles or on buns.
