By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 60 mins

Ingredients

1 Block Firm Tofu (18 oz or smaller)

Hamburger Buns

Lettuce

Tomato

2 Tbsp (30ml) Soy Sauce

1 Tbsp (15ml) Date Honey or Maple Syrup

1 Tbsp (16g) Peanut Butter

1/2 tsp Chili and Garlic Spice (or other spice mix)

18 oz (500g) White Button Mushrooms

2 Tbsp (30ml) Soy Sauce

1 cup (240ml) Coconut Cream

1 Tbsp (8g) All-Purpose Flour

Instructions

1Press the tofu for 20 minutes either using a Tofu Press, or by wrapping it in absorbent towel and placing something heavy (like a heavy pot) on top of it.

2Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit (180 degrees celsius).

3When pressed, cut the tofu into thick square burgers.

4Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

5Place the tofu burgers onto the parchment paper and bake in the oven for 40 minutes, turning the tofu over after 20 minutes.

6Mix the marinade sauce into a bowl.

7When the tofu is finished baking, place the tofu into a dish and pour the marinade sauce over it.

8While the tofu is marinating, start your mushroom sauce.

9Chop the mushrooms and add to a pan with the 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce.

10Cover with a lid and turn the heat to medium high.

11When the mushrooms release their water and are bubbling away remove the lid and let the water cook off.

12When the water is mostly evaporated, add the coconut cream and simmer for a minute.

13Then mix the Tbsp of flour with a small amount of leftover coconut cream (or water) into a thick paste.

14Stir it into the sauce.

15Allow to boil for a couple of minutes after adding the flour to further thicken up before removing from the heat.

16While the sauce cools, heat a pan on the stove, and then remove the tofu from the marinade sauce, using a slotted spatula so that most of the sauce remains behind and place it into the frying pan.

17Brown the tofu a few minutes on each side, until properly browned.

18Prepare your hamburger buns, adding lettuce and sliced tomato.

19Add the browned tofu burger on top, and finish up with some mushroom sauce, or serve the mushroom sauce on the side.
