Tofu oat burgers

This one is low fat if you remember to:
  • you use a lower fat tofu
  • you water-saute the veggies, and bake the burger rather than frying
About 8 servings

2 medium onions, chopped finely
3 ribs celery, chopped finely
light oil (sunflower, peanut, etc.) for sautéeing and frying
1-1/2 pounds firm tofu, drained
1 cup rolled oats (regular or quick-cooking)
2 Tablespoons tamari soy sauce
1 large clove garlic, pressed or finely minced
1/2 teaspoon dried herbs of your choice, optional

Sauté the onions and celery in a thin layer of oil until soft, about 5-10 minutes. In a mixing bowl,
mash the tofu with a fork. Add in the oats, tamari, garlic, herbs (if using any) and the sautéed
vegetables. Mix well, then knead until mixture is smooth. Form into burgers and fry in lightly oiled skillet until browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
