Tvp Veggie Burgers

Tvp Veggie Burgers created by Nathalie S.

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.

ingredients

directions

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

    As the previous poster mentioned, the addition of an egg was crucial. I eliminated the marjoram and used 1 tablespoon of dried basil instead of 1/2 cup fresh. Otherwise, this recipe was a massive hit. Well done!

    I had a hard time keeping them from crumbling using this original recipe, so I made a batch where I added one vegan egg with the flour and they turned out so amazing. Thank you!

    I ate half the "patties" before I even cooked them so yummy. Subbed flour for coconut flour. Soy sauce for coconut aminos and added zucchini instead of celery. Mine did not stay together at all so I just scrambled it all up and put them in lettuce cups. If you're not vegan I would suggest binding it with an egg or whatever you vegans use thats like an egg. but it tasted great and I would try it again but with an egg next time.

    I have no ketchup on hand--wondering if thinned tomato paste with a pinch of sugar would be a workable substitute?

    Made these last night. Not bad, but with the Worcestershire and soy sauce and the added salt they were kind of salty. I think I might omit the extra salt the next time I made them. I'm also thinking of replacing the flour with potato flakes just to see if that would work.
