Barbecued Tofu-Potato Burgers

Barbecued Tofu-Potato Burgers


  • 1 pound soft tofu
  • 1/2 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup peeled Idaho potato, finely-grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 2 tablespoons unsulfured molasses
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon 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 degrees 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.
