    StuYoung's Note:

    I tried to recreate the veggie burgers that McMaster University's Bridges Cafe serves, and I think I've pretty much got it with this recipe.

    1. 1
      Stir TVP into boiling water in a medium mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Add ketchup, Worcestershire, soy (appx. 2 tsp), salt, herbs and spices.
    3. 3
      Let stand 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Heat carrots, celery, onion, garlic and basic in a little oil in a skillet, until JUST softened.
    5. 5
      Mix veggies into TVP mixture, slowly adding flour until the mixture holds its own shape (like a mix between dough and ground beef).
    6. 6
      Shape into 6 patties (1/2 inch think or so).
    7. 7
      Cook in frying pan in a bit of oil until both sides are hardened up and darkened.
    8. 8
      I've tried adding chili powder to the oil in the pan before cooking the patties, and it adds nice flavour.
    9. 9
      Also, when shaping the final mixture, it really helps to wet your hands with a bit of water to prevent it sticking.

      I have tried many recipes for homemade meatless burgers.....I hate paying the high prices in the stores, and I like knowing exactly what is in my food. These were the absolute BEST so far!!! I added a few chopped mushrooms with the vegetables and left out the carrot because I didn't have any. I also added a few drops of liquid smoke just for a bit more flavor. These were a HUGE success!!!! Even my kids, who spurn anything vegetarian, really liked them!!! :) It doesn't get much better than that!! :)

      I'm pretty picky when it comes to veggie burgers (mock meats in general) I really liked these! I've made other tvp burgers that weren't near this good. The texture is better and they stayed together! I like this spice combo, but I think it would be better with mushrooms and caramelized onions, or even gravy! Next time I use this for "hamburgers" I'll change up the spice mixture a bit ( possabilities are endless, but keep the onion/celery!). These would also be great "chicken" patties with the right seasonings (vegan chicken bullion perhaps?) That being said I did make a few changes (it's in my nature) I threw in a couple TBSPs of wheat gluten (which gave a little more "bite"), a hand full of shredded cheese, little extra ketchup, some spicy mustard and black pepper! Thanks Stuyoung!

      Yes, this really works! I served the burgers up for my family, and they all said how much they enjoyed them, and that I must make them again. They have a great texture and taste. I substituted some tomato puree and a teaspoon of honey instead of the ketchup. because i don't eat much stuff with sugar in it, and also put in a teaspoon of cumin and a bit of chilli powder. i also found that it needed just a touch more flour than stated in the recipe.
