Gourmet Baked Tofu Patties

Tofu patties lend themselves to a variety of menus, from a simple family meal, with veggies or salad, and a grain dish to a six course company dinner.

  4. Add the veggie spice mixture, rice and flour to the tofu, and mix well by hand, or on low in the food processor just until the mixture clumps up

  6. Bake for 25 minutes until the outside is crisp and browned

Recipe Tips

If you can only get firm tofu, press out the excess water: Cut tofu lengthwise in 4 - 6 slices. Place in a folded dishtowel, cover with a cutting board, weighted with something heavy. Leave for ten minutes. This method will make the tofu extra firm, so the mixture isn't gooey

Tofu patties are almost as quick and easy as tofu burgers. They're nice with Chickpea Gravy, tomato sauce, salsa, or ketchup.
