What you need:


  • 1 x 400g medium tofu

  • 1 heaped Tbsp vegemite

  • ½ cup low fodmap breadcrumbs

  • 2 Eggs

  • 2Tbsp hemp seed

  • Black pepper

  • Pinch of salt

Oil to fry – neutral flavour – rice bran, veg


  • 300g mayonnaise, (check labels for no lactose)

  • 6 white cocktail onions, chopped

  • 1 handful dill, chopped

  • juice of half a lemon to taste.

  • 4 low fodmap Bakers Delight Rolls

Filling suggestions

  • 4 slices pineapple, grilled

  • 2 tomatoes, Adelaide, green, heirloom, sliced

  • 3 large dill pickles, sliced

  • ¼ iceberg lettuce, finely shredded

To make Low FODMAP:

  • Tofu must be firm NOT silken

  • Check mayonnaise for no garlic or onion


Step 1: To make the mayonnaise, mix the mayonnaise, pickled onions, dill, paprika and pepper in a bowl. Add lemon juice to taste. Set aside and make the burger patty. 

 Step 2: Break up the tofu, and mix all patty ingredients in a bowl.

 Step 3: Form 4 patties with your hands.

 Step 4: Heat a pan on high, grill the pineapple for a couple of minutes on each side to caramelize.

 Step 5: Heat 1cm of oil in a large wide based fry pan over medium heat.

 Step 6: Fry the patties on one side for 3 minutes, flip and cook for another 2 minutes. As soon as you flip the burger lay slices of cheese on top of the patty to melt.

 Step 7: Cut open the low fodmap buns, spoon a generous dollop of mayonnaise on both sides of the buns. Lay the patty with cheese on the bottom, then layer with tomato, pickle slices, pineapple and lettuce. Skewer the burger to hold all ingredients in place and serve.
