2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Pickle the turnip

  • Peel the turnip and trim the ends; using the peeler and working around the round outer edge, shave half [all] the turnip into thin ribbons. Alternatively, cut the turnip in half lengthwise, then thinly slice half the turnip crosswise into half-moons. Save the remaining turnip half for another use. [Shave or slice 1 turnip; save the remaining turnip.]
In a small sauce pot, bring the quick-pickle brine and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the turnip, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the cucumber salad

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into ½-inch pieces.
In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber and rice vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Cook the burgers; toast the buns

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu burgers and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
Place the buns, cut sides down, in the pan and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.


Assemble the burgers

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and top each with a tofu burger. Top with the pickled turnip and drizzle each with 1 tablespoon Korean BBQ glaze. Close with the bun tops.


Transfer the tofu burgers and cucumber salad to individual plates. Serve any remaining pickled turnip and the remaining BBQ glaze on the side.
