  • 10 oz / ~300 g block of firm smoked tofu If you can't find smoked tofu, use any marinated tofu you like
  • 1 small summer cabbage
  • 4 burger buns
  • ~2 tbsp oil

Caesar salad sauce

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened creamy yogurt of choice
  • 1 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tsp capers
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • black pepper

Garlic oil

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of salt

Additional ingredients

  • vegan parmesan
  • fresh herbs such as parsley and/or cilantro


  • Cut tofu into 2-3 pieces and cover with a cloth or paper towel. Dry tofu under a heavy pan for about 15 minutes.
  • Blend caesar salad sauce ingredients. You can also just smash them with a fork together if you don't want your sauce to be smooth.
  • Chop garlic into tiny pieces and fry in a pan with olive oil in medium heat for a few minutes. Add salt and set aside.
  • Grate vegan parmesan as much as you like. We used about 1/4 cups (divided into 4 burgers).
  • Cut dried tofu into 6-8 pieces. Cut cabbage into a few pieces. Brush both tofu and cabbage with oil.
  • Grill tofu and cabbage for a few minutes per side on a hot grill. 
  • Toast burger buns for a few seconds on the grill too to get nice and crunchy buns.
  • Assemble burgers: spread caesar salad sauce, add tofu pieces, garlic oil, grated parmesan, piece of cabbage, fresh herbs and sauce. ENJOY this epic summer burger!
