Give the cookout favorite a nutrition boost with soy-packed patties high in the phytochemicals that help prevent cancer and heart disease. The grated potato adds potassium and B vitamins to this meal.


  • 1 pound soft tofu
  • 1/2 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup peeled Idaho potato, finely-grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon (metric) onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (metric) garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (metric) salt
  • 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 2 tablespoon (metric) honey
  • 2 tablespoon (metric) red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon (metric) chili powder
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split
  • Cooking spray



1. In a large bowl, combine tofu, bread crumbs, potato, onion and garlic powders, and salt. Mix well to combine. Shape the mixture into 4 patties and set aside.
2. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, molasses, honey, vinegar, and chili powder. Whisk until blended. Brush the mixture over both sides of the patties. Transfer the patties to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and refrigerate 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400° F.
3. Bake tofu burgers for 25 minutes, until browned on the outside and cooked through. Meanwhile, transfer remaining barbecue sauce to a small saucepan. Set over medium-high heat. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, until the mixture thickens and reduces to approximately 1/4 cup.
4. Arrange tofu burgers on the buns, and spoon barbecue sauce over top.
