Essential Tofu Burgers with Easy Quick Pickles

This week I shared a new recipe for tofu burgers on Food52. Back when I wrote Veggie Burgers Every Which Way I wasn’t as enthusiastic about tofu as I am now, now that I’ve spent a lot more time enjoying it on its own and in the myriad of delicious ways that it appears in dishes across many Asian cuisines.

Head over to Food52 for the write-up and the recipe, as well as for photos by the excellent Spencer Starnes.
