Haven’t had much luck lately making veggie burgers? You can stop searching for the perfect recipe – we’ve got it! The secret ingredient is textured vegetable protein (TVP), which creates a delicate, delicious texture (bet you won’t miss the meat!).

Bonus: our dried cranberries add a tangy-sweet touch you’ll love.  Better yet, a slice of cheese on top of the patty makes a perfect sweet and salty combo. And if you’re headed out on a camping trip, they’re perfect – no refrigeration required!

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (425°F).

  2. Reconstitute the TVP in vegetable broth or boiling water. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes. Drain any remaining liquid. Set aside.

  3. Combine all ingredients for the patties in a big bowl. Form 4 patties.

  4. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Fry patties for 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Put the patties in the oven for about 20 minutes to finish cooking.

  5. Add your favourite toppings to create a tasty “burger” just the way you like it!

Recommendations

Textured vegetable protein, also known as textured soy protein, makes a great replacement for ground beef or finely chopped meat in your favourite recipes. It comes in dry granules, ready to rehydrate in broth or water. You can find it in the health-food section at most grocery stores.
