on the side
Freeze a block of tofu (around 300 g) for more than a day. Defrost and wring the excess water. You should have about 100 g.
Mix the tofu and the ＊ ingredients and form into patties. If the mixture is too soft, add more panko to adjust.
Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry both sides of the patties.
Add the Extremely Delicious Teriyaki Garlic Sauce, and coat the patties with the sauce so they become shiny.
If the tofu mixture is still loose, adjust by adding more panko.
If you are adding egg yolk, adjust by adding more of the ＊ ingredients.
I increased the amount of the ＊ ingredients so that I could make lots of patties from 1 block of tofu without affecting the final result.

Story Behind this Recipe
When I started living on a tight budget, I tried to think of meatless dishes with a meaty texture. I realized that frozen tofu has a texture similar to chicken, and went through some trial and error to come up with this recipe.
By frying the patties in a slightly generous amount of vegetable oil, they won't fall apart and the tofu-like texture will lesson, making them more like chicken tsukune. After trying out a lot of things the combination of leek and enoki mushrooms worked the best, but basically you can use any kind of leftovers in your refrigerator.
