fast.cook's picture
  Lentils 1 Cup (16 tbs), picked over, rinsed, and drained
  Firm tofu 6 Ounce, cubed
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Fat-free egg substitute 2 Tablespoon
  Rice vinegar 1 Tablespoon
  Ground cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon

1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the lentils, reduce the heat, and cook until they are tender but still hold their shape, about 25 minutes. Drain.
2 Put the lentils and the remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it forms a salsa-like, chunky puree. Shape the mixture into 6 (4-inch) patties.
3 Spray a large nonstick skillet with canola nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until browned and firm, about 3 minutes on each side.
