I have a habit of asking my husband for new recipes. Recipes about. I usually make a pre-selection and then let him decide what it should be in the end. I don’t know why I do that, but it’s just a little tick of mine. Perhaps I have learned that he usually demonstrates excellent taste? No idea! With this Court there was only one problem that was really serious. There was only one burger for everyone and you tell that to a 2 meter man. Ok, next time I’ll do more, I promise.

I had to laugh the other day when my dad said that he was really into smoked tofu. “Des schmeckt ja wie a Leberkäs” he said and my laughing fit was guaranteed. I think it’s great that my father is so enthusiastic about tofu. Tofu can be enthusiastic. Today’s version is not about Bavarian tradition, but about an Asian-inspired burger that tastes just great. Burger which tastes simply gigantically good. A dream I tell you!

Tofu – an absolute all-round talent

For our today’s Burger we need Tofu (here I take a 400g package) and make a delicious marinade with peanut butter, tamari, rice vinegar, maple syrup, sesame oil, bird eye chili and freshly grated ginger.

Add to this Roll (burger or sandwich bun to taste), lettuce leaves, fresh cucumber slices, milk sour fermented vegetables and fresh cilantro greens. The highlight of this Recipe is that we simply use the rest of the breading as sauce for the burger.

200g of tofu steak please?

When frying you need only a very small amount of oil and you should use a well coated pan. Alternatively you can Tofu slices at 200 degrees in the oven without oil.

This recipe is simple, delicious and brings a wonderful change of pace to the kitchen. I just love to experiment and always bring something new to the table. To go with it is a delicious Salad , Sweet potato fries , or the crispiest fries.

The sandwich / burger with peanut butter tofu (30 minutes) is:

  • hearty
  • simple to be produced
  • Asian
  • versatile
  • Extremely tasty
