Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t even begin to describe how much I love Greek Food, or well, the concept of dill, olives, vegan feta and cucumber! While my number one favorite thing to do with dill is make a mean vegan Chickpea Tuna Salad

 

 

My second favorite thing to do with dill now is, .. MAKE VEGAN GREEK BURGERS!!

 

 


 

What I love about this recipe is that its colorful, has no flour, nutrient dense, filling, has great presentation, tofu feta cheese, the flavors blend seamlessly together, and its perfect for warm summer days!!

Feta Tofu
  1. Press the firm tofu to remove excess water. Use paper towels or paper towels with a weight on top to assist in the process. Cut the tofu into cubes. For the marinade mix all other ingredients in container add the cubed tofu, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and ideally 3-5 days. Tofu will take more texturized form and resemble feta cheese more.The longer it sits the better it will taste! My first batch sat in the fridge for nearly 5 days and as the days passed tasted better and better. Would throw away after two weeks.
Burgers
  1. Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Add quinoa to water and cook until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain quinoa well. Set aside. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a small skillet over medium high heat. Add onion to oil and cook until tender and browned around edges, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir garlic, oregano, and salt into onion. Cook until fragrant, stirring constantly, about 30 seconds.
  3. Remove skillet from heat. Set aside.
  4. Place oats in a food processor and pulse into dust. Place beans in a large bowl and mash until smooth. Add quinoa, sauteed onions, dill, squeeze of lemon, vegan egg, oat flour, green onions, chopped olives, parsley, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Mix well, then divide into 4 patties. Heat remaining 2 tsp. olive oil in a large skillet. Add patties to oil and cook until browned on both sides.
Prepare sauce
  1. While Greek burgers are cooking, mix together cucumber, vegan yogurt/sour cream, crumbled vegan feta, minced garlic and dill. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top burgers with arugula, red onion, cucumber, and Cucumber Feta Sauce.
