Ingredients

  1. Check 1/2cup soy sauce
  2. Check 2tablespoons sugar
  3. Check 1tablespoon white vinegar
  4. Check 14ounces extra-firm tofu, drained
  5. Check 2tablespoons olive oil (if cooking on a stove top)

  7. Check 1 4-ounce package alfalfa sprouts
  8. Check 1 small bunch radishes, sliced

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine the soy sauce, sugar, and vinegar. Cook the marinade over low heat until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Cut the tofu into four 1-inch-thick burgers. Transfer to a bowl, pour the marinade over the top, and let sit 15 minutes, turning once.
  3. Place the burgers on a medium-hot grill and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side. (Or heat the oil in a grill pan over medium heat and cook the tofu 2 minutes per side.)
  4. Top each burger with some of the Cheddar and cook 2 minutes more or until the cheese melts.
  5. Top with some sprouts and sliced radishes. Serve on the rolls with mustard, if desired.
