Nutritional values

It does not always have to be meat - as our vegetarian patties prove. Tofu and eggs provide muscle-strengthening protein, while spring onions, bean sprouts and carrots provide vital substances. The carrot owes its colour to the natural colouring agent beta-carotene, which is the most important precursor of vitamin A. Hence the name provitamin A. Vitamin A is not only essential for the visual process, but also important for the growth and development of skin and mucous membranes.

You prefer vegan? You can replace the eggs with 2 tablespoons of crushed linseed. Soak them for 10 minutes in 3 tablespoons of water. You can easily bake the matching burger buns yourself using our recipe for vegan burger buns. Even the burger sauce can be made by yourself in no time - how about the vegan mayonnaise from EAT SMARTER?

Preparation steps


Rinse, trim and thinly slice the scallions. Peel the carrots and ginger and finely grate. Rinse the sprouts and drain well. In a bowl, finely mash the tofu with a fork. Add the eggs, flour, almonds, scallions, carrots and ginger. Finely chop about 1/3 of the sprouts and add to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper, knead until the mixture comes together and shape into 4 flat patties.

Heat the oil in a skillet and saute until golden brown on both sides, 8-10 minutes.


Rinse the lettuce leaves and shake dry. Rinse, core and slice the tomato. Rinse and thinly slice the cucumber. Halve the buns horizontally. Spread each with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise and top with lettuce, tofu burgers, cucumber, tomato and remaining sprouts. Replace the lid and serve immediately.
