Before you start

Preheat the oven to 180°C l Line 2 baking trays l Tofu press or 2 clean tea towels and a weight l Large frying pan l Toaster or grill heated to max

Prepare the tofu

  • Press the tofu for 10 minutes using a tofu press or place it between two clean tea towels, lay it on a plate and put a weight on top

Make the burger patties

  • Place the plant-based sausages in a mixing bowl and mash with a fork
  • Peel the garlic and grate it into the bowl
  • Crack the pepper, and add the dried herbs and spices and stir to combine
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed
  • Grease your hands with a little oil and shape the mixture into 4 burger patties that are the same diameter as the muffins
  • Place on one of the baking trays and roast in the hot oven for 18 minutes
  • Remove the tray and place a slice of dairy-free cheese on top of each patty
  • Return to the oven for another 2 minutes

Meanwhile, make the ‘bacon’ mushrooms

  • Slice the mushrooms
  • Mix the soy sauce, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar in a bowl
  • Add the mushrooms and stir to coat in the marinade
  • Spread the mushrooms out over a baking tray, drizzle the oil over the top, then roast for 18–20 minutes

Make the tofu ‘egg’

  • Put the pressed tofu on its side and cut it into 4 thin slices, then carefully trim the corners to make the slices roughly the same size as the muffins
  • Mix the 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and the remaining ingredients together on a plate
  • Move the slices of tofu around in the marinade to coat
  • Put a frying pan over a medium heat and warm a couple of tablespoons of oil
  • Fry the tofu slices for 3 minutes on each side, until the edges are turning golden brown

Prepare the muffins

  • Halve the muffins and toast until golden and crispy
  • Butter the slices 
  • Build the burgers by placing the cheese-topped burger patties on the muffin bases
  • Lay a tofu egg on top of each patty (you may need to trim the corners a little bit to get a nice round burger shape!)
  • Top with the bacon mushrooms, ketchup or brown sauce and the muffin tops
  • Serve immediately
