Nina&Pick Me Up Tofu Patties

My darling friend Nina's idea of heaven would be to throw magnificent dinner parties all the time, something she does to perfection. She must have a streak of Karen Blixen's Babette. I remember walking in the mountains with her, spotting a magnificent stag, I pointed it out saying: "look at the beautiful stag", she said: "what a roast!"

These patties are quite nice, if a little bit eccentric, I tend to nibble the finished ones when making them though. Do not go totally over board when it comes to garlic, a little goes a long way here. I also don't use a recipe when making them, so the measurements are very happy-go-lucky.

block of cotton tofu - you don't really need a gourmet variety here
one onion
2-3 tablespoons of flax seeds - preferably ground ones
maybe 4 tablespoons of hemp flour
the same amount of soya floor
some egg replacement (not sure if it works without it, but haven't tried it out)
some oatmeal
some soy milk to make a good consistency
a little ground cumin
some rosemary (I'm bats about rosemary and put it into everything that I hope will taste well with it added, so maybe for the especially interested?)
sea salt to taste
one clove of garlic
Mix in blender

Make patties (they don't keep well enough together to make good burgers) and fry slowly in canola oil or olive oil. Enjoy! Ketchup is strangely nice with these.
