This tofu burger recipe is juicy, flavorful, and grill-able! Pile it high with your favorite toppings and enjoy at your next cookout.

TOFU BURGERS. Yes. This is for real. As in, regular hamburger-style tofu burgers that stand up to being grilled and could probably fool any diehard meat eater into loving them. I’m not kidding here, people.

Remember the other day when we made this crunchy & colorful Thai salad together and it was wonderful and I told you that you’d be needing it for another recipe soon? That recipe is these tofu burgers and your mind is about to be blown.

Because –

These tofu burgers are AMAZING. Sweet and spicy with a slight crisp on the outside and tender perfection on the inside.

These tofu burgers grill up like a dream, meaning you have a brand new veg option for your next cookout.

These tofu burgers don’t look like tofu at all. They look like actual burgers.

These tofu burgers have flavor and texture that you would never expect from tofu. The BOMB.

With this recipe, it’s alllll about the marinade. There’s the tiniest bit of prep involved with the tofu – drain, press, cut into burger shape. But other than that, you just have to mix up the marinade and toss the patties on the grill (or bake!).

Once they’re on the grill (or in the oven) cook the burgers for 8-10 minutes per side, bun ’em up, top with that Thai salad I’ve been raving about, and smash your burger! If you do it right, you will achieve the grill makes to end all grill marks.

I planned on getting this recipe out a week earlier but life had other plans like flying home to help my parents move out of my childhood home and witness the sale of their business…. more on that in a later post.  For that reason, I’m keeping things short and sweet today. More time for the grilling and eating of these burgers, am I right?

SO – make these bad boys ASAP and tell me all about it. Deal? Deal.
