Last night I made tofu burgers out of the Moosewood New Classics cookbook. Sounds kinda gross, right? I mean, I love tofu, but as a burger?<br>
They were AWESOME! Absolutely incredible. Even my 3 yo son was licking his plate. Anyone want this great recipe?

Here's the recipe. Make them and you will love them. Seriously.<br>
Oh, and I recommend using your food processor for the vegetables, if you have one. It goes much faster.<br><br><b>Moosewood Tofu Burgers</b><br>
2 cakes firm tofu (16 oz.) each<br>
2 T vegetable oil<br>
2 C grated or diced onions<br>
1 C peeled and grated carrot<br>
1 C diced green pepper<br>
1 tsp. dried basil<br>
1 tsp. dried dill<br>
2/3 C chopped walnuts<br>
1 C bread crumbs<br>
2 T tahini<br>
2 T light miso<br>
2 T soy sauce<br><br>
Sandwich the tofu between two plates and rest a heavy weight on the top plate (I use a brick). Press for about 15 minues; then drain the expressed liquid from the bottom plate.<br><br>
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.<br><br>
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and saute the onions, carrots, peppers, oregano, basil and dill for about seven minutes until the veggies are just tender. Crumble the pressed tofu into a large bowl. Stir in the walnuts, bread cumbs, tahini, miso, soy sauce. Add the sauteed veggies and mix well (I used my hands with my 3 yo ds and he loved running his fingers through it at this point).<br><br>
Using about 3/4 C of burger mix per burger, form eight patties by hand and place them on the baking sheet about 2" apart. Bake for 30 minutes until the burgers are firm and brown.<br><br>
Note: The description of the recipe says that they often serve this w/Russian dressing, so I had dh whip up some from their recipe and man, was it good! Here's that recipe too:<br><br><b>Easy Russian Dressing</b><br>
1/4 C diced tomato<br>
1/3 cup mayonnaise (we used nayonnaise)<br>
1 T chopped scallion<br>
1 tsp. horseradish<br>
1 tsp. cider vinegar<br>
1/2 tsp. salt<br>
1/4 tsp. pepper<br>
Dash of hot sauce<br>
Optional: 1 tsp. tomato paste (we left this out and it was fine)<br><br>
Whirl it all up in a blender or a food processor until smooth and creamy.

I just noticed this forum!<br><br>
My favorite recipe is "Emira's Speedy Gourmet Kale and Tofu Delight" from "La Dolce Vegan." I love this recipe book. I highly recommend it!<br><br>
brown rice (or grain of choice - I use quinoa) enough for 2 people<br>
1/2 lb tofu, cubed<br>
2 tbsp olive oil<br>
1 large garlic clove, minced<br>
4 cups kale, chopped<br>
1/4 tsp hot red pepper flakes<br>
1/4 tsp salt<br>
1/4 tsp ground black pepper flakes<br>
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar<br>
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted<br><br>
In a medium pot, cook the rice accordingly. While the rice is cooking, in a wok or large saucepan or medium-high heat, saute the tofu in oil until it starts to brown. Add the garlic, kale, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar. Cover with lid and saute for an additional 5 minutes (sometimes I go longer). Garnish with pine nuts and serve over rice. Makes 2 servings.<br><br>
This recipe started my love affair with kale! So yummy!! I also add some bragg's amino acid and nutritional yeast after it's all done.<br><br>
Also, another yummy thing is to make some quinoa and then add some oil, turmeric, honey, salt, and bragg's and mix it all up. A very yummy way to make quinoa.

i'm in lurve with the chana saag aloo from vegan mania, in the colder months we have it almost once a week! though i do omit the cayenne because otherwise my kiddos complain it's too spicy.<br><br><a href="http://www.veganmania.com/recipes" target="_blank">http://www.veganmania.com/recipes</a><br>
i can't link directly to the recipe, so i'll C&P it here...<br><br>
Chana Saag Aloo<br>
Creamy Curried Chickpeas, Spinach and Potatoes<br><br>
2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1" cubes<br>
2 cups cooked chickpeas (one 19oz can)<br>
1 large onion, minced<br>
4 cloves garlic, minced<br>
1 can (398mL) coconut milk<br>
1 large bunch of fresh spinach, washed, dried, and chopped into thin strips<br>
1 large ripe tomato, chopped<br>
1/3 cup nutritional yeast (optional, but adds nice body to the flavour)<br>
2 tbsp oil<br>
2 tbsp curry powder<br>
1 tsp cayenne pepper<br>
salt to taste<br>
In a heavy-bottomed pot, heat the oil over medium. Add the chopped potatoes, onions, garlic, and all the spices, and saute until the onions are translucent.<br><br>
Add the cooked chickpeas, nutritional yeast (if desired), and can of coconut milk. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.<br><br>
Stir in the chopped spinach and tomatoes and cook until the spinach has wilted. Serve over a fragrant basmati or jasmin rice.<br><br>
Makes enough for 4-6 people.

I love this recipe for curried channa<br><a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/157384" target="_blank">http://www.recipezaar.com/157384</a> Very very spicy though, so you can add less hot sauce if desired.<br>
I also love Cuban black beans and rice<br><a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/46221" target="_blank">http://www.recipezaar.com/46221</a><br>
I also love dahl with rice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">
