  • 8 3/4 oz tofu
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp sherry
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (not bread yeast)
  • 1 medium sized onion, diced finely
  • 1 Tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1/4 cup wholewheat flour


Remove tofu from its package and stand on a sloping board for a few minutes, allowing any excess liquid to drain away.

Crumble tofu into a bowl, add garlic and onion, then the remaining ingredients.

Mix together well, then working with wet hands, divide the mixture into quarters, then eighths. Shape each portion into a 3 to 4-inch patty.

Heat a non-stick skillet; cook for 5 minutes per side, or until the burgers are golden brown.


Substitute sherry for a dash of lemon juice.
