4 servings


+ Add To Shopping List
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
14 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained
2 tablespoons olive oil (if cooking on a stovetop)
1/4 pound Cheddar, sliced
1 4-ounce package alfalfa sprouts
1 small bunch radishes, sliced
4 whole-wheat rolls, toasted
Honey mustard (optional)


Prep: 15 Minutes
Other: 20 Minutes

In a saucepan, combine the soy sauce, sugar, and vinegar. Cook over low heat until the marinade thickens, 5 to 7 minutes. Cut the tofu into four 1-inch-thick burgers; transfer to a bowl, pour the marinade over the top, and let sit 15 minutes, turning once. Place on a medium-hot grill and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side. (To cook on a stovetop, heat the olive oil in a grill pan over medium heat and cook the tofu 2 minutes per side.) Top each burger with some of the Cheddar and cook 2 minutes more or until the cheese melts. Top with some sprouts and sliced radishes. Serve on the whole-wheat rolls with mustard, if desired.
