For years I've endured paying $1 for a patty at the store feeling like I could figure out the recipe, but never could until now. Eureka! Mock chicken patties that taste marvelous on a bun with fixin's or slathered in gravy, Texas-style. Very good stuff.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add onion and celery, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Place tofu and water in a blender or food processor. Pulse briefly. Add bouillon cubes and vegetable base. Pulse until completely combined. Stir in onion, celery, oats, and cashews until evenly distributed.

  • Form tofu mixture into patties.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook tofu patties until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

Instead of patties, you can make into little chicken nuggets, too, or even roll them in bread crumbs and fry them in a little oil. The possibilities seem endless!

Chicken bouillon may be substituted for vegetable bouillon. Beef-style soup base may be substituted for vegetable base.

Quick oats may be substituted for rolled oats.
