You can make our tofu burgers in two easy steps with less than 10 ingredients.

Our vegan tofu burgers have a deliciously spicy kick thanks to the addition of Sriracha. If serving vegans or vegetarians, make sure you cook these on a part of the BBQ that meat hasn’t been cooked on.


  • 280g pack firm tofu, drained
  • 2tbsp sriracha
  • Small bunch coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, very finely chopped
  • 1tbsp soy sauce
  • 50g (13/4oz) panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 sprigs mint, leaves picked and finely chopped
  • 4 vegan burger buns

Accompaniments of your choice

  • we like fried onions and burger relish




  1. Grate the tofu into a large bowl. Add in the sriracha sauce, coriander, shallot, soy sauce, panko breadcrumbs and mint. Mix to combine and then, using your fingers, squeeze the mixture together to combine it well. Form four equal patties and chill for 20mins before cooking.
  2. Cook on the BBQ for a few mins each side, until cooked through. These can also be fried to cook them - only use a little oil (around 1tsp) and cook for 5-8 mins each side until cooked. Serve in burger buns with your favourite accompaniments.

Top tips for making tofu burgers

If the mixture remains crumbly after working for a few mins, add a little more sriracha sauce (1/2tbsp at a time) to bring it together. The mixture should not be wet but should hold together when you form a burger patty.
