  • 1 block regular tofu, frozen
  • 1 cup frozen petite peas
  • 1 large or 2 small onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup or vegan BBQ sauce
  • veg or olive oil for frying
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • egg substitute, equivalent of 1 egg*
  • red or black pepper to taste
  • tamari or salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin


*I personally use eggs, but this recipe wouldprobably work just fine with a substitute such as2 T veggie mayo. Good old shredded potatoesmight also help hold this together. If youexperiment and find something that works well,please post it!

This is not a standard latke recipe as far asseasoning goes, but it tastes great--sort of halfway between a latke and a veggie burger. For amore traditional latke, leave out the curry andBBQ sauce.


Freeze the tofu (at least several hours) and thendefrost it either by microwaving it or by thawingit (with the help of hot water, if you like).

Crumble and squeeze out the tofu. Warm up theoil over medium heat, and throw in the cumin andchili powder for less than a minute, and then addthe chopped onions. Cook till golden, about 5minutes. Add the garlic and then the tofu. Cookabout 5 more minutes, till the tofu starts tobrown. Transfer to a bowl and let it cool (cleanyour pan). Add salt/tamari and pepper, thenflour and egg substitute, peas (frozen is fine,BBQ or ketchup, and combine thoroughly. Heat upoil in frying pan. Form the tofu mixture intoflattened balls and fry them in the oil, lettingeach side get brown and crispy. (This can bedone in just a little oil, but not oil-free.)Serve right away, or reheat in oven for 5-6 min.when ready to serve.
