4 ½ OZ. PROTEIN, 1 VEGGIE, AND 1 CARB PER SERVING
1 c carrot, grated
1 c green onions/scallions, sliced
1 c red bell pepper, thinly sliced or diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1¼ inch piece ginger, grated
14 oz firm tofu*, drained and crumbled
1 whole egg
1 egg white
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. You may add sodium-free seasoning mix and pepper if desired.
Lightly spray a medium metal pastry ring or cookie cutter with cooking spray and place in a nonstick pan.
When the pan is hot, pour 5 tbsp of the batter into the ring and turn the heat down to Medium. (You may omit the ring if you want your patty more rustic.)
Cook 4-5 minutes until golden, then take off the ring (be careful, as it will be hot), flip the patty and cook the other side.
Do this in batches, keeping finished patty warm in a low oven.
Serve this on or along side 1 cup of salad greens.
