Simple and Yummy Textured Soy Protein Burgers

What you need: 

3/4 cup boiling water
3/4 cup textured soy protein granules
2 teaspoons arrowroot
1/4 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
oil, as needed for frying
4 sandwich buns, warmed

What you do: 

1. Mix boiling water into textured soy protein granules and let sit for 15 minutes. In another bowl, mix together arrowroot, oats, onion powder, garlic powder, flour, soy sauce, ketchup, salt, and pepper.
2. Once textured soy protein is rehydrated, add oat mixture to textured soy protein and mix well. Cover and place in the fridge for 15 minutes to allow textured soy protein to firm up.
3. Remove textured soy protein and divide into quarters. With your hands, roll each quarter into a ball and flatten into a patty shape.
4. Lightly brush each side with oil and add some oil to a large skillet. Heat oil until a drop of water sizzles, then add patties to the skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side.
Assemble the sandwich with lettuce, pickles, and tomatoes. Enjoy!

These are awesome! I'd never had textured soy protein before, and this was a WONDERFUL way to introduce myself to a new ingredient. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!  :)


this recipe is so easy and so freaking delicious. i added a little bit of shaved carrot and minced red pepper, and a touch of thyme and basil. i will definitely make this again!


Do you literally just add the arrowroot powder or do you first mix it with warm water like I would for cookies?  Thanks!
