A spectacular vegetarian burger option, or for anyone looking for something different. A tofu-loving friend and I dreamed this up for a Memorial Day grill-out. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite toppings.

LOVED THEM!! I had a vegetarian friend over for dinner last night and made these and the whole crowd raved about them! I was a little worried that they wouldn't have a lot of flavor but once they were grilled they had an amazing taste. Mine were a little watery (because I used the entire package of tofu) so I added some crushed Triscuits to soak up the extra water and they turned out great. I will make this recipe over and over again! Thanks AmieO! Read More

I couldn't even bring myself to grill these:( I am not a picky eater--I'll try just about anything especially if I know what's in it but these didn't even smell good. The best thing I can say is that I was able to enjoy 1 can minus 1/2 cup of tasty refreshing Guinness instead. Sorry AmieO Read More

These are wonderful. I dont drink and couldnt find a single bottle of stout so I used an IPA... I liked the texture in these.. every once in awhile you'd get a little nugget of walnut.. I didnt grill them as that would be my only issue with them. They are very soft. I cooked in a skillet sprayed with non stick spray. As long as you leave t em alone for 5-7 minutes to let a crust form these should work fine. Read More

It was decent enough but probably not something I'd make again. There just wasn't much flavor to it and I followed the recipe exactly as it was given. Read More
