Meat-Free Silken Tofu Hamburger

Meat-Free Silken Tofu Hamburger

I wanted to try making a hamburger from tofu. I wondered what the hamburger would be like if I used silken tofu, so I came up with this. It was surprisingly easier to make compared to a meat hamburger and it beat the flavor!

Don't be stingy with the panko! Make sure to use the same amount as the tofu! Unlike meat, even they burns a little, they will still smell and taste great. Just cover up the burned part with sauce! I always eat them with teriyaki sauce (soy sauce, sugar, mirin, katakuriko dissolved in water, and ground sesame seeds).
If you are making these for two, you could use all 3 of the smaller 3-block tofu packs that you often see. Use the same amount of panko as the tofu, one small onion, and one egg (the size of the egg doesn't matter).
It's also fine to use firm tofu instead of silken tofu. Recipe by CNA

    Combine the silken tofu, egg, panko, salt, and pepper in a bowl and thoroughly mix. Add the onion from Step 1 and mix again until even. The mixture is now done. Form the mixture into patties of your desired sizes.

    Oil a frying pan and place the patties into the pan. Cover with a lid and fry both sides. Once they're cooked, pour your favorite sauce on top and you're done! It's also fine to pour the sauce over the hamburgers while they're still in the frying pan.
