A veggie burger packed to the brim with real-food energy boosting ingredients!
- 1 block of firm or extra firm tofu
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup chopped green onions, only the top green part (about 8 green onions)
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1 cup swiss chard, finely chopped
- ½ bell pepper, chopped
- ½ cup finely chopped walnuts
- 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce (or tamari for low FODMAP or gluten free)
- 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ½ cup grapes
- Press the tofu for about 30 minutes by placing between to paper towel lined plates and resting something heavy (cook books or cans usually work) on top of the plate.
- While the tofu is pressing, you can get the rest of the burger mix ready.
- Pulse the carrots and bell pepper a food processor fitted with a sharp s-blade a few times until the veggies are chopped.
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the green onions, oregano, and salt and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Mix in the carrots and bell pepper and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Place this vegetable mixture in a bowl and set to the side.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place the pressed tofu in the food processor and pulse a few times. Next, add the cooked vegetables, swiss chard, soy sauce (or tamari), dijon, almond butter, and black pepper. Pulse until the mixture is combined.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Shape the tofu mixture into 4 patties and place on the prepared baking sheet.
- Add the grapes to the baking sheet and roast the burgers and the grapes at 375 for 35-40 minutes, or until the burgers are firm.
- Serve on your favorite whole grain bun, gluten free bun if necessary (or my fav…on a bed of greens) and top with fresh basil, dijon mustard and the roasted grapes.
