Wash produce before use


Make the quick-pickled zucchini and kimchi

  • Cut the zucchini crosswise into thin slices.
  • Coarsely chop the kimchi.
In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini and kimchi, including any juices. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the scallions and burgers

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu burgers and cook until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the burgers, add the scallions, and cook, stirring the scallions occasionally, until they are lightly charred and the burgers are lightly browned and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
While the burgers and scallions cook, prepare the garnishes and the buns.


Prep the garnishes; toast the buns

  • Cut away the cores from the tomatoes; cut the tomatoes into ¼-inch-thick slices.
In a small bowl, stir together the guacamole and as much gochujang and kimchi chile flakes as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the burgers, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.


Assemble the burgers

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and top each with a burger, as much spicy guacamole as you like, tomato slices, and scallions. Close with the bun tops.


Transfer the burgers to individual plates and serve the pickled zucchini and kimchi on the side.
