Makes 6 to 8 burgers What You Need:
1 cup textured vegetable protein granules
1 cup vegetable broth
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 white onion, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 cup vital wheat gluten
2 tablespoons panko-style breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 cup diced scallions
What You Do:
1. In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together TVP granules and broth, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 5 to 6 minutes.
2. In a flat-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes.
3. In a food processor, combine TVP, sautéed mushroom mixture, vital wheat gluten, breadcrumbs, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, salt, chipotle powder, cumin, pepper, nutritional yeast, tamari, and tomato paste. Process until well combined. If mixture is crumbly, add a tablespoon vegetable broth or water until mixture has a thicker consistency.
