main meals | Top off our low-fat, high-nutrition tofu patties with a variety of POINT-free toppings: Lettuce, sliced onion and tomato, sprouts and mustard.

1/2 lb(s) carrot(s), grated
4 medium scallion(s), minced
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
7 1/2 oz firm tofu, extra-firm preferred, well-drained and diced
1 cup(s) dried bread crumbs, whole-wheat
1/4 cup(s) teriyaki sauce
2 large egg white(s)
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
4 medium reduced-calorie hamburger roll(s)


Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add carrots, scallions and garlic; sauté until carrots are tender, about 4 minutes. Add tofu and sauté for 1 minute more; transfer mixture to a medium-size bowl.

Stir in bread crumbs, teriyaki sauce, egg whites, salt and pepper. Shape into 4 equal-sized patties, pressing firmly with your hands.

Wipe out sauté pan and coat it with cooking spray again. Fry patties on both sides until crisp and brown, about 3 minutes per side. Serve on rolls.
