Trader Joe's Organic Tofu Veggie Burger

This week, it's another veggie burger: Trader Joe's Organic Tofu Veggie Burger. I cooked one of these up one night when I was short on time and just wanted something quick and easy. Definitely lived up to those expectations.

I put a little vegetable oil into a pan and cooked this burger until it was nice and crispy, tossed it on a couple slices of bread (no buns in the house, unfortunately) and gave it a taste. I tasted bread, and that was about it. It didn't taste like anything. I was very disappointed. I had our Japanese exchange student give it a taste, and she informed me that it did not taste like nothing - it tasted like tofu. Which makes sense, since that was right there in the name. But apparently to me, tofu tastes like nothing.

I even tried to jazz it up with some mayo and some ketchup. Turns out, this veggie burger had an anti-flavor - it actually removed the flavors of the mayo and the ketchup so that all I could taste was the bread. What the heck?

Now I'm not sure what to do with the remaining veggie burger in the fridge… Hopefully I can get our student to eat it, because I'm not interested.

The experience:
Texture - Nice and crispy on the outside
Flavor - Tastes like nothing tofu - maybe with some very aggressive condiments you could taste the condiments...

Final grade for this attempt: D
