TVP Burger

Summertime is a great for getting out the grill and celebrating with family and friends.  Whether you choose to not eat meat yourself, or want to offer a meatless option for others, there are many tasty and healthy options for burgers.  More and more people are playing with whole grains, beans and other ingredients to create unique and satisfying options for a plant-based burger.  Here are a few recipes for you to try.

Quinoa Burger

 

Textured Vegetable Protein Burgers

 Hemp Burgers

Quinoa Veggie Burgers

Bean and Barley Burgers

 

I played around with many of these ingredients myself and came up with my own recipe which uses a combination of many ingredients and the resulting burger is full of flavor.  Instead of forming the TSP mixture into burgers, you can also fry them up as meatballs, or cook up for use in spaghetti or chili.  This recipe is really versatile.

1 ½ cups TSP (Textured Soy Protein)
6 oz. Tomato Paste
1 ½ cups Hot Water
2 Tb Braggs or Soy Sauce
¼ cup Olive Oil
¼ tsp Liquid Smoke (optional)
¾ cup Gluten Flour
1 cup Quick Rolled Oats
¼ cup Sesame Seeds, ground
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 Tb Onion Flakes
2 tsp Poultry Seasoning
1 tsp Garlic Granules

Combine the hot water and tomato paste.  Pour this into the TSP and mix.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Add the braggs, oil and liquid smoke to the TSP mixture.  In a separate bowl, combine the gluten flour, oats, sesame seeds, salt, onion flakes, poultry seasoning and garlic granules.  Pour the liquid ingredients into the wet and mix until all is combined.  Form into patties and place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes, flipping burger after 10 minutes.  Makes 8 burgers.
