Serves: 8
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and mashed
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 (14 ounce) package firm tofu
  • 5 tablespoons Korean barbeque sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the mashed garbanzo beans and basil.
  2. Mix in the oat bran, quick oats, and rice; the mixture should seem a little dry.
  3. In a separate bowl, mash the tofu with your hands, trying to squeeze out as much of the water as possible.
  4. Drain of the water, and repeat the process until there is hardly any water worth pouring off.
  5. Pour the barbeque sauce over the tofu, and stir to coat.
  6. Stir the tofu into the garbanzo beans and oats.
  7. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and sage; mix until well blended.
  8. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  9. Form patties out of the bean mixture, and fry them in hot oil for about 5 minutes per side.

    I am taking chicken breasts and covering with BBQ sauce, letting set overnight. I’m baking them til they are almost done, then laying precooked bacon, cheddar cheese slices, and a lil more bbq sauce across the top and baking until cheese is melted. What BBQ sauce from the grocery store would be good for this?

    Hey Trenton! Trader Joe’s BBQ sauce is excellent! If you can’t find that, try Sweet Baby Ray’s.

    Hope this helps!
