Ingredients:

1 tablespoon chia seeds
3 tablespoons water
9 ounces spinach
6 unsulfured, no-salt-added sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in enough warm water to cover for 30 minutes, drained and then finely chopped
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
14 ounce block extra firm tofu, frozen and thawed (see note)
1/2 cup whole wheat panko or bread crumbs
1/4 cup unhulled sesame seeds, toasted
2 teaspoons Bragg Liquid Aminos
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste

Instructions:

Combine chia seeds and water and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes.

Heat a large wok or saute pan, add 2-3 tablespoons of water and saute spinach until wilted. When cool, squeeze out as much water as possible. Chop it finely. Transfer to a large bowl.

Squeeze as much water from the tofu as possible Crumble half of the tofu into the bowl. Mash the remaining tofu and add to the bowl. Mix in the chia seeds, sun-dried tomatoes, red onion, garlic, panko, toasted sesame seeds, Braggs, black pepper and red pepper flakes.

Form into 8 burgers and place on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes, carefully flip and bake for another 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

If desired, serve on a 100% whole grain pita with lettuce, tomato and red onion. To make a quick topping, whisk together 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, 1 teaspoon curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos, 1 teaspoon lime juice, 2 teaspoons rice vinegar and 3 tablespoons warm water.

Note:
Thaw tofu for about 6 hours.
