  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.

Thanks for a good recipe.I didn't have fresh basil so used a liberal amount of dried and served the burger on wheat toast with ketchup and lettuce. I think its important to remove water properly...

Rather disappointing. The mixture didn't hold together well enough to put on a bun and it was too spicy.

I thought it was okay, not great, but then, I'm not a huge tofu fan either. People in my family who like tofu loved it! I'm sure if I make if more it'll grow on me! Thanks:)
