  1. HI, Chef Hans. This looks like a great recipe for those ‘burger’ cravings without the beef. In checking your ingredients….is one of those “green bell peppers” a red one? and about how much tofu are you using? It doesn’t say. I’m certain to give this recipe a go. Thanks for sharing.


    1. Hi Lynn,
      thanks for pointing it out, I corrected it – yes, one is red peppers.
      You add as much tofu as you wish. since it is in the center, it does not change
      the texture of the mix 🙂
