Caprese Tofu Burgers (And a $100 gift card giveaway!)

Posted Oct 01 2013 2:02pm
My husband and I aren’t huge meat eaters. We’re not vegans or vegetarians by any means, but we’re also not carnivores either. I probably make 1 -2 recipes a week that have meat, and most of those contain either bacon or pork belly. Plus, with both of us trying to shed some extra weight, meat has sort of been absent from our dinner plates.

This is why I was really excited to participate in the BlogHer review and try some of their meatless products, like the baked tofu snacks and crumbles. Although we don’t eat them often, we love burgers and it’s hard to find good veggie substitutes. Honestly, I think we’ve probably tried every brand out there without much luck. They are bland, really chewy or very crumbly, which is why I decided to use the tofu stacks to make my own version of veggie burgers.

Wildwood tofu

To give the burgers a bit more oomph, we topped each tofu patty with mozzarella, basil and tomatoes. Even without the add ons, I think these tofu patties would be amazing on their own. They are hearty and thick, which make them feel like a burger when you’re eating them, which is half the fun of eating a burger, when you have to grab it with both hands because it’s so hefty.

Perfect for any time, any season, any day, trust me. I LOVE these burgers! Now, for the fun part. A $100 visa gift card giveaway! Wanna know how to win? Simply answer this question in the comments below!  What would be your ideal recipe when using Wildwood products?

Yields about 4 sliders.
