- 1/2 cup tofu
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups cooked garbanzo beans
- 1 cup cooked kidney beans
- 1 cup chopped tomato
- 3/4 cup chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup olives, halved
- zest of 2 lemons
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
- 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking pan with cooking spray.
Wrap tofu in a clean towel and press with a small weight for 10 minutes to remove excess water. Remove tofu from towel, then dice and toss it with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt and set aside.
In a food processor, puree garbanzo and kidney beans with remaining ingredients. Transfer bean mixture to a large bowl and fold in the diced tofu.
Form bean cakes using 3/4 cup of bean mix per cake and bake at 350 for 15 minutes on the prepared sheet pan.
Serve while hot. Extra cakes can be frozen and reheated in a microwave or toaster oven. Enjoy!
