Tofu Burgers

1 block tofu,

2 carrots, grated

1/2 cup almond flour

1-2 eggs, start with one.

1 tsp. sea salt, to taste

1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper

1 shallot, minced

2-3 tbsp. olive oil, coconut, or ghee

Lemon Tahini Sauce

1/2 cup tahini paste

2-3 tbsp. lemon, 1 lemon

2 -3 tbsp. water

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup chopped parsley, cilantro, or dill

1/2 tsp. sea salt, to taste

pinch, black pepper

pinch sumac, optional

Method for Burgers

Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl, and blend together. Add a bit more almond flour if it feels too wet. Add another egg if it feels too dry. Roll the mixture into desired-size balls, and lay them out on paper towels, to remove any excess moisture.

In a nonstick pan on medium heat, add the oil of your choice. When the pan is hot place the balls in the pan, and flatten them with a spatula. Brown on both sides. Takes about 5-7 minutes on each side.

Method: for Tahini Sauce

In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini paste and lemon juice. It will become thick. Slowly whisk in the water until the sauce can drizzle from a spoon. Add the salt and pepper, (and grated garlic and additional spices, if using) and adjust to taste. If the sauce is too thick, add another teaspoon or so of water as needed.

Stir in chopped parsley, or other herbs.


Lay two large burgers or 3 smaller ones on a plate, and drizzle lemon tahini dressing over the burgers. Garnish with the herb of your choice. Serve with a green salad.
