Tofu Patty with Black Kale

After a long week of assignments, presentations and an incredibly stressful interview, I decided to kick back and cook up something interesting.

I was planning on just making some boring grilled tofu, but decided I was craving something much more… burgery. So I decided to make some tofu patties with whatever I had in the fridge.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the exact proportions for this recipe, but it can be measured to taste.

  • 2 pieces of medium firm tofu
  • 3-4 cremini mushrooms
  • 1 stalk green onion
  • bit of flour (or breadcrumbs, I didn’t have any at the moment) to bind
  • bit of kale
  • 1 chopped walnut (optional, for texture)
  • some cooked rice (that I had leftover,  made with vegetable broth instead of water)
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • salt
  • pepper

Doesn't look very appealing uncooked...

Mix all the ingredients together and and form 1/2 inch patties. I found that the patties were fairly fragile so making them smaller than I have here should make them much more manageable when cooking. Pan fry the patties on medium heat until both sides are nice and golden and enjoy =)

Hot off the pan!
