Tofu Burger Recipe

Tofu Burger

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 2

Sometimes you just want to kick back and relax with a good burger and some fries. This ground tofu patty burger, topped with Boombay’s savoury and healthy Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce, is the perfect plant-based addition to your cookout party menu.

Chef’s note:

  • Press and gently pan-fry, steak-sized blocks of tofu. Marinate them in our 100% plant-based Teriyaki Sauce, which also works great as a marinade. Use our thick sauce to enjoy tofu patties with deliciously crispy crusts on the barbeque. 
  • When ready, serve the burgers with a side of french fries.


  • 3 tablespoons of Boombay’s Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce
  • 1 packet of Extra Firm Tofu
  • 1 small Tomato
  • 1 small Onion
  • 1 small Iceberg Lettuce
  • 2 Burger Buns
  • 1 teaspoon of Oil to fry French fries
  • 1 tablespoon of your favourite Butter

Products Used:


  1. Cut tofu into a steak shape to fit inside the burger bun.
  2. In case the tofu seems too thick, cut it horizontally into two pieces
  3. Marinate the tofu in 2 tablespoons of our Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce
  4. Wash the tomato and the onion
  5. Slice the tomato into thin slices and the onion into circles     
  6. Clean and wash the iceberg nicely before keeping it in ice-cold water to retain freshness
  1. Heat a grill, cast-iron or non-stick pan and add oil
  2. Grill the marinated tofu block until the grill line appears and if you are cooking on a pan, cook until the tofu is golden brown on all sides. 
  3. Add the tomato slices and onion slices to the grill and char them from both sides 
  4. Cut the burger buns and smear butter on both sides of the bun or toast the buns if desired
  5. Assemble the burger by placing iceberg lettuce on the bottom piece of the bun, then add a couple of slices of tomato, grilled tofu and onion slices.

Prepare french fries to enjoy as the perfect side!
