IBS-Friendly Tofu Patties

Hey IBS community! Lately I have been experimenting a lot more with tofu and I would love to share this recipe that I have created for any of you tofu-lovers. The one thing I love about tofu is that it truly is a great replacement for meat, especially since I am trying to cut down due to my IBS. Tofu is a great source of protein and is naturally a gluten-free product, which is great for IBS-friendly recipes. It also contains lots of beneficial nutrients and hardly affects your cholesterol. In this recipe, I have created my version of tofu patties that you can either enjoy on a burger bun, or on a salad - whichever works best for you. I guarantee you won’t be upset with the taste! Try it out and let me know what you think!


  • 12 oz. of Extra firm tofu
  • ¼ cup of gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp of dried ginger
  • ½ cup of shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of dried parsley
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 3 tsps of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • (Optional) slices of Swiss cheese
  • 2 tbsps of coconut oil/vegetable oil


  1. Make sure to drain the tofu and wrap with paper towels for at least an hour or two before cooking.
  2. Put tofu in a large bowl and either crumble with your hands or use a potato masher. (You can also use a food processor)
  3. Mix the tofu with shredded parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper, eggs, and ginger.
