I'm getting a late start to my post today, but I've been in my office working all day! I've gotten a lot accomplished!!
Here is today's Meatless Monday recipe!
Tasty Tofu Patties from Vegetarian Times Magazine
This recipe cooks up even quicker when you use pregrated carrots.
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise (vegannaise is my fave)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 tsp. dried tarragon
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1 14 oz pkg firm tofu, drained
1 4 oz can sliced mushrooms, rinsed, drained and finely chopped
1/3 cup grated carrots
4 sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and finely chopped
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 16 oz jar prepared tomato sauce
1. Whisk together mayonnaise, onion parsley, tarragon, and mustard in bowl. Mash tofu into mixture with fork. Stir in mushrooms, carrots and sun-dried tomatoes. Fold in breadcrumbs.
2. Heat large skillet coated with cooking spray over med heat. Scoop tofu mixture onto hot skillet in 1/4 cup dollops and reduce heat to med-low. cook 5-7 mins or until patties are golden. Flip patties and cook 4-5 mins more. Transfer to plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining tofu mix until you have 8 patties. Transer to plates and serve each patty topped with 1/4 cup tomato sauce.

These turned out great! Brian and I really enjoyed them for dinner tonight! I didn't cook all of them and I plan to serve the rest tomorrow - uncooked as a tofu salad sandwich for lunch!!!
Have a great day. Eat clean and push play
