All-Star Veggie Burger)

Use soy. No, use beans. No, use oats. No, use rice. Hey, why not use them all? This veggie burger is an alternative to eating its beefy cousin (and can be used together). It's high in fiber and as a stand alone patty, actually tastes pretty good. Once you layer the ketchup, the mustard, pickles, etc. you won't be able to tell the difference.

  4. Drain of the water, and repeat the process until there is hardly any water worth pouring off.
  5. It is not necessary to remove all of the water.
  6. Pour the barbeque sauce over the tofu, and stir to coat.
