  • 1 carrot, shredded

  • 1 zucchini, shredded

  • 1 (10 ounce) package silken tofu

  • 1 small yellow onion, diced

  • 1 celery, finely chopped

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons red Thai curry paste

  • cup fresh basil leaves

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Press carrot and zucchini between paper towels to remove excess moisture. In a medium bowl combine carrots, zucchini, tofu, onion, celery, egg, bread crumbs and curry paste.

  2. Chop 2/3 of the basil and add it to the tofu mixture. Mix well and form into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Serve with remaining basil leaves.
