sunny okara burgers

I’ve been making my own tofu for a while now and every time I am trying to come up with ideas of what to do with the leftover okara. I usually use the okara for scrambles or cookies. And sometimes I make burgers. This is one of my favorite burger recipes.


2 cups raw sunflower seeds
2 cups okara or crumbled tofu
1 carrot, grated
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp liquid smoke
Salt and pepper to taste

sunflower okara burgers

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend. Form burger shape patties. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat in a cast iron skillet and cook the burgers for 5-6 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve with rice or quinoa and with your preferred greens/salad. Enjoy!
