 These “cheesy” yellow split pea patties with tofu and sesame are some of the best patties I’ve ever made! They’re vegan, but they have the consistency and taste of cheese patties. 

WOW! These yellow split pea patties with tofu were awesome!!! They’re by far one of my best vegan patties recipes so far. I discovered a great, vegan egg replacement for patties and I’ve been using it ever since. Combined with the taste and texture of yellow split peas, this recipe turned out amazing!

Tapioca flour + nutritional yeast = cheesy goodness! This is the perfect, vegan egg replacement in vegan patties. It also tastes amazing (nutritional yeast is addictive!) and the resulted texture is “cheesy” and the patties will melt in your mouth!

If you don’t believe me that these patties are cheesy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, then you’ll definitely need to take a look at the video above. You can see that they’re not mushy at all! The outside is crunchy and the inside is melty.

These yellow split pea patties with tofu are really easy to make. Just boil the peas, mix the ingredients together and lightly fry or bake the patties. I would recommend the ‘lightly frying’ method for these patties. Not because of health reasons, because we all know that baking is healthier, but because the texture will be better. You’ll use very little oil, only spray the non-sticking frying pan and it’s enough.

So, here they are! You can thank me later for this recipe! 😀

    1. Tapioca gives them that cheesy texture. Alternatively use any other flour you want, but they won’t have the same texture.

    1. I used peas not beans in this recipe, but if you have canned yellow split peas you can surely use them. 🙂 It will save you a lot of time.

  1. I’m going to try these. They look delicious, and I like Kristin’s idea of putting them on a salad. The only difference I might make is that I’ll saute the onions first, before adding to the ingredients. Thanks.

    1. Yes, you cau saute the onions first so they will be sweeter. I really like onion so I don’t mind a stronger taste. Glad you like them! 🙂

  2. Hi Ruxandra! These look really good! I’m going to have to try these on top of a huge family style salad! yum! I think we might have to fight for the patties though! 😉
