If Wendy's serves square burgers, why can't I?

Baked and served on a onion sesame bun, with Indian Spiced Mayo.

Baked Curry and Macadamia Nut Crusted Tofu Burgers with Indian Spiced Mayo
(makes 4 patties)
1 block extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
1 14 oz can of coconut milk
1 cup panko style bread crumbs
2 tbsp yellow curry powder
1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts (I use dry roasted and salted nuts)
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

Pre heat oven to 350 F degrees. Prep a cookie sheet with parchment, a silicone mat, or spray with cooking spray. After draining and pressing your tofu block, carefully cut it into 4 equal "steaks." In a shallow dish, mix together all ingredients except tofu and coconut milk. In a seperate shallow dish, place the coconut milk. Create a breading station.

Dip the tofu, first into the coconut milk, and then into the breadcrumb mixture to coat. Repeat with the other 3 pieces and place onto the prepped cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes.

Indian Spiced Mayo
(makes about 1 cup)
1 cup vegan mayo (either homemade or store bought)
1 tbsp garam masala
1 pinch paprika
1 pinch turmeric
salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and keep refrigerated, in an air tight container, until ready to use.
