Aussie Textured Soy Protein Burgers

What you need: 

3 cups of dry textured soy protein
1 grated carrot
Ener-G Egg Replacer for 1 egg
tomato pasta sauce or tomato paste
salt and seasoning to taste

What you do: 

Place the textured soy protein and tomato paste/sauce in a bowl - you need enough tomato sauce to hydrate the textured soy protein. Leave it for 15 minutes. Add grated carrot or any vegetable that you have. You can even add frozen peas or something similar.
Add enough Ener-G Egg Replacer to the equivilant to 1 egg.
Spice it up! add garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Use whatever seasonings you prefer.
Form the mixture into flat balls and place them on a flour covered plate. Fry them up on the stove top.
For best results place the mixture in the fridge for a few hours - or even better overnight.

These tasted great, but I had some trouble with keeping them together.  I think I had too much sauce...could you tell me exactly how much sauce you use to hydrate the soy protein?

The next day I crumbled up the leftovers and heated them up with some different veggies and put it on tostadas...really good.


Lovely burgers which me and my fiance both enjoyed! I loved how they turned out crispy when I shallow fried them :)


:)Great recipe!  You just need to watch the ratio between liquid and TVP. Adding onion is a great idea, try red onion, that way if it doesn't cook it still tastes good raw.  If you do end up with sticky TVP just add a bit of breadcrumbs until it is aboutt he right consistancy.
