    Vegan Meaty TVP Burgers

    1 cup TVP
    3/4 cup flour or wheat gluten
    2 tablespoon bbq sauce or ketchup or marinera
    1 tablespoon Hot Sauce
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (make sure its VEGAN, some use anchovies)
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/2 large onion chopped and diced


prepare tvp as instructed on package (1 cup hot water to 1 cup tvp, let sit and rehydrate)

add all other ingredients in a bowl and mix together and form patties to an average veggie burger size with your hands. Because the vital wheat gluten increases in size when cooked, make sure your patties are small and fairly thin. I would say, 3 inches in diameter and no more than 1/5a inch in width. Unless of course you want to make tvp "quarter pounders" :)

Over a medium heat, add oil to a frying pan, and cook each side until browned over. Squish down if necessary. The insides will still be softer than the crunchy outside, and they will be awesome. These seriously put shame to any store bought vegan burger!

Of course - go crazy with experimenting with spices. My first batch i added about 2 teaspoons of curry and 1 teaspoon of paprika, 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper and 1 teaspoon of black seseme seeds. RAVE REVIEWS.
