INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 14 oz Organic Firm Tofu
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 sweet potato
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1/3 cup Cilantro
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup Guacamole, Spicy
  • 1 serving Medium Head Lettuce

DIRECTIONS

1 Squeeze, crumble, then well drain the tofu in a fine mesh strainer; set aside. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
2 Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large (PFOA-free) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes, onion, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and cook covered until the sweet potatoes are fork tender and lightly caramelized, about 18 minutes, stirring several times. Stir in the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Set aside, uncovered, to cool slightly.
3 Add the hummus, cilantro, black pepper, cayenne, and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt to a medium bowl and stir until combined. Add the tofu and breadcrumbs and stir until combined. Stir in the sweet potato mixture and thoroughly combine by hand.
4 Firmly form the mixture into 12 balls; place onto an unbleached parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Press with your fingertips to form 2¾-inch diameter patties. Brush with 1/2 tablespoon of the boil. Roast for 12 minutes. Gently flip over each patty. Brush with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil and roast until the patties are cooked through and browned, about 12 minutes more. Let stand for at least 5 minutes to complete the cooking process.
