Vegan BBQ Tofu Burger – a super easy, vegan burger recipe that’s perfect for grilling or Summer dinner parties. Make the best 4th of July menu with this baby. The crispy fried onions, the juicy BBQ tofu, the garlicky mayonnaise sauce and lettuce with tomatoes create a tasty party in you mouth. Let’s eat!
Alright. Let’s talk about this baby for a second. This burger is the mother of all vegan burgers. Not only because it’s so super easy to make (perfect for beginners, trust me 😉 ) but it’s SO ridiculously flavorful and J-U-I-C-Y.
Vegan Garlicky Mayonnaise Sauce
To make the sauce, simply combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. That’s it!
To make the BBQ tofu, first cut a 0.35 lbs (160 g) smoked(!) tofu block in half and poke little holes in them with a fork (helps with absorption). Cover the slices with the BBQ marinade/sauce (ingredients in the recipe card). Let the tofu sit for at least 10 minutes (up to 6-7 hours) then fry on both sides on medium heat until the slices are nice and crispy.
The end result should look like this:
To create delicious fried onions, cut up 1 big onion into thin slices, dip them into plant milk, then flour, then hot oil. Fry them until they are golden brown. Add salt and/or pepper at the end to taste.
And now basically, all that’s left is to layer all the components into a hamburger.
How I did it: garlic mayonnaise sauce, lettuce, BBQ tofu, vegan cheddar cheese, tomato slices, garlic mayonnaise sauce and fried onions. Yumm!!!
A mouthwatering bite shot for the end. 😉
