Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is adapted from a recipe I found a few years ago in the "Moosewood Restaurant New Classics" cookbook when I was looking for a family-friendly way to cut back on meat. My kids love it!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (16 oz) block firm tofu, grated or crumbled
1 (14.5 oz) can diced, no salt added, tomatoes
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste

5 to 6 whole wheat hamburger buns


In a large pan, sauté the onions and garlic in the oil on medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add the celery and bell pepper, continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the tofu and the remaining ingredients (not the buns) and simmer for 10 minutes.

Split and toast the buns. Divide the filling between the buns and enjoy!
