Ingredients
12 ounces firm tofu, drained
2 cups cooked black beans, drained
¾ cup quick-cooking oats, uncooked
½ cup red onions, finely chopped
½ cup carrots, grated
1 teaspoon ginger root, grated
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons brown sugar, packed
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, to taste
1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Flour for dusting
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
Whole-wheat buns

Peanut-cilantro sauce
3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ cup fresh cilantro, minced

Preparation
1. In a large mixing bowl, mash the tofu.

2. Add the beans, oats, onions, carrots, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, garlic and red pepper flakes. Mix well, then mash until the mixture reaches a uniform consistency and holds together.

3. Form the mixture into six to eight patties.

4. Brush both sides of the patties with oil and dust with flour.

5. Heat a saute pan to medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side.

6. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by blending the peanut butter and lemon juice in a small bowl. Mix in the cilantro.

7. Serve the patties on toasted buns, and top with the peanut-cilantro sauce and cucumber slices.
