  1. Press carrot and zucchini between paper towels to remove excess moisture. In a medium bowl combine carrots, zucchini, tofu, onion, celery, egg, bread crumbs and curry paste.
  2. Chop 2/3 of the basil and add it to the tofu mixture. Mix well and form into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Serve with remaining basil leaves.

This was really good- although I made quite a few changes. First, I didn't have basil so I used parsely, a little mint and curry to spice it and then I liked the taste of it so much (I hadn't ad...

I thought it was okay, not great, but then, I'm not a huge tofu fan either. People in my family who like tofu loved it! I'm sure if I make if more it'll grow on me! Thanks:)

These were pretty tasty but def. had a kick to them. They're a little messy so I fryed them and them baked them in the oven to get them cooked evenly. They're actually better left over and wit...
