This is a super clean recipe. There are no undesirable ingredients. Everything is healthy and pure. When I prepare my burgers, I make sure that I use organic tofu. This way I am certain it has not been genetically modified and it is grown under the healthiest conditions. I try to use as many organic ingredients as possible. Organic is not always available for everything, but I do my best. This ensures my family is eating healthy and pure.
To add to the nutrient content and “clean” appeal of this recipe, I serve the burgers on Ezekiel buns. They are flour-less and made only from ground sprouted grains. They taste good and are the perfect compliment to this burger.
- 1/2 container firm or extra firm tofu, mashed
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 3 green onions, diced
- 4 tbsp buckwheat flour*
- 2 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- dash pepper

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Combine everything well. Don’t be afraid to get in there and mix it well with your hands. Once everything is well combined, form about 4 good-sized burgers.
