Feta, spinach and dill flavor these tofu patties. Slice some lemon wedges and pick up some whole-wheat pita bread to serve with this Greek-inspired meal.

4 servings | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in couscous, cover and remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Combine yogurt, cucumber, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Mash tofu with a fork in a large bowl. Add spinach, feta, dill, onion, pepper, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the couscous; stir until well combined. Form into 8 patties, using about 1/2 cup for each.
  4. Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to the lowest setting. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 4 patties and cook, turning once, until lightly golden on both sides, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining oil and patties. Serve over lettuce, topped with the yogurt sauce and garnished with tomatoes, if desired.
