Burgers are all the rage right now. They’re simple to make, convenient to eat and are super filling for when you’re really hungry. However, all burgers aren’t created equal. A lot are filled with processed nasties that aren’t very nutritious and leave you feeling sleepy and heavy. This epic burger recipe is nutrient dense, gluten-free and super tasty. Who says you can’t have it all?

3.     Coat all pieces in the Flour mixture, then dip in the Buttermilk mixture and finally coat with the Crumb mixture.
4.     Place in a single layer on your pre-lined baking tray and bake for 45 minutes or until golden.
5.     Flip patties over after about 30 minutes to get a golden crust on each side.
6.     While your patty is baking, mix all ingredients for the kaleslaw together in a medium bowl and set aside.
7.     Once your patties are done, allow them to cool at room temperature until safe to touch.
8.     To assemble your burger, place 1 tbsp of sriracha mayo onto your bottom burger bun. Top with a cos lettuce leaf, slice tomato, tofu patty, kaleslaw and finish with the top half of the burger bun. Enjoy!
