Instructions

Chipotle Maple Glazed Tofu Burgers

  • Cut block of tofu in half (so you have 2 square blocks) and then slice each block lengthwise into thirds to make square patties.
  • Drain the tofu.
  • If baking, preheat the oven to 450F. Combine the rest of the marinade ingredients in a shallow dish and marinate the tofu patties for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Scrape off the extra marinade before cooking and reserve the excess.
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium-low and add the leftover marinade. Bring to a simmer and cook until just thick. Remove from heat.
  • Baking: Place patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10 minutes. Top with 1/2 of the thickened glaze and bake for 4 minutes, flip and top with the remaining glaze and bake for another 4 minutes. Warm buns in the oven during the last 2-4 minutes of cooking time.
  • Pan-frying: Heat 1/2-1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Place patties in hot oil and cook until browned around the edges, about 5 minutes, flip and brown the other side. Top with 1/2 of the thickened glaze and flip, cooking until the glaze bubbles and thickens. Top with the remaining glaze, flip and cook until both sides are coated with glaze.

Toppings

  • Chipotle-Sriracha Mayo: Combine all ingredients and let sit while tofu marinates.
  • Guacamole: Mash 1/2 of the avocado, and chop the other half. Combine the mashed avocado, chopped avocado, tomato, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.
  • Vegetables: Prepare all vegetables while the tofu marinates and bakes.
