Double Black Bean Tofu Cheeseburgers with Mori-Nu Silken Tofu

Tofu Burgers (5)

While I like to consider myself something of a tofu aficionado, I’m not so experienced using silken tofu. I think I used it once or twice while attempting tofu omelets and Matzoh Brei. But otherwise, I don’t think about using it too much.

Now I’m trying to change that and learn my way around silken tofu the way I did with regular tofu. I received a variety of types from Morinaga or as we all know them, Mori-Nu.

Silken tofu has the advantage over regular tofu in that you don’t have to press it. It also comes in aseptic packages that are shelf-stable.

So I used my first package of silken tofu to make a tofu scramble. J'ai choisi le Lite Firm figuring I was breaking it up anyway.

The tofu scramble came out light, fluffy and delicious. We had it with Neat Foods Breakfast Sausage. After eating it, I really couldn’t see any great benefit to using regular tofu over the silken kind. This was really good and there was no pressing involved.

Then I decided to make something that somehow had escaped my attention. With all the hamburgers végétariens J'ai fait – and I’ve made a lot – I had never made a tofu burger.

So I picked out another package of Mori-Nu Silken Tofu, this time the Firm.

I also added black beans, oignons, kale and lots of spices. Wanting it to have “mâcher,” I tossed in some xanthan gum. Then I used gluten-free bread crumbs from Crackers révolu de Marie and a little bit of chickpea flour.

Unlike my usual burgers, I made these patties thin. Daiya Mozzarella Shreds got melted down on top.

I put extra cheese to make “skirts.” We love cheese skirts. If you don’t know what that is, it’s when you put so much cheese that it hangs off the sides of the burger and it cooks up crispy and delicious. Yum!

When it came time to put them on buns, I made double-deckers with lettuce, tomate, ketchup and vegan mayo. Sur le côté, we had oven-baked fries. I didn’t even bother to take the usual million photos because I couldn’t wait to taste them. C'est ok, I can look at these same photos over and over again 🙂

OMG! These burgers were so good. They tasted more like beefy burgers than bean burgers. The texture was crispy on the outside because I really let them build up a crust while cooking them but they were tender inside and just so delicious.

I don’t know why it took me so long to make tofu burgers or use silken tofu but now that I have, I’m going to make more. I can’t wait to see what other great dishes I make with Mori-Nu’s Silken Tofu. Stay tuned and enjoy!

1 cup kale or any greens, haché

2 Tbs. la pâte de tomates

Mix in the tomato paste, tamari, and seasoning. Add the xanthan gum and the bread crumbs. Mix everything well and see if the mixture feels like it will hold in patties.

Add flour, quelques cuillères à la fois, until the mixture feels smooth, not too sticky and you think the patties will hold up. Répartir le mélange dans 6 equal parts and shape them into burger patties. Let them rest on a plate while you heat up the oil.

Dans une poêle, faire chauffer l'huile à feu moyen-élevé. Lieu 3 of the patties (depending on the size of your pan) in the pan and don’t move it until it forms a good crust on the bottom, sur 4 minutes. Gently flip the patties and cook the second side until browned, autre 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cook the remaining patties.

To melt the cheese, put the burgers in the pan over medium heat. Top each burger with mozzarella shreds. Ajouter 2 Tbs. water to the pan and cover the pan. The cheese will melt from the steam. Serve the burgers on buns with lettuce, tomatoes and your favorite toppings.

    I’ve been so disappointed that my local Whole Foods and small health food store stopped carrying those handy shelf-stable containers of MoriNu. It was great for making a fast, yum pudding, and your burger and scramble look great (as all yours do!). I’ll have to order it from Amazon if I want to use it! 🙁

      That’s too bad. I thought that was the most popular silken tofu brand.

    I don’t have a gluten issue. What could I sub for the xantham gum? These sound amazing! Merci

    • Rhea Juillet 15, 2015 à 4:37 pm #

      If you can have gluten, utiliser 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten instead of the gum. That will give you the chewy taste and it will hold together better. Instead of chickpea flour, you could use any flour if you need it for more holding power.

        Parfait! Merci!
