Xeen's TVP Burger

So I took this recipe, printed it up, and only used like… half of it :-p

1 cup TVP
3/4 cup wheat flour
2 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon Hot Sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tsp Lawry’s seasoned salt stuff
1/2 Liquid smoke
1/2 Cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Tiny bit of Better Than Boullian

Mix everything together (minus the Better).

Boil a cup of water and dissolve Better in it.

Dump boiled water over mixture.  Mix it up real goodlike.  Let it sit an cool to absorb everything (5 to 10 minutes).

Form patties according to your desire and fry ’em up!

Ok mine came out really extra thin because my mixture was barely holding together.  Next time… I’ll be changing things a lot.  Like a bit less water.  Less salty items…

I served this with gouda cheese, mustard and ketchup.  It would be loads better with BBQ/tankatsu sauce and some salad but nooooo I don’t have these magical things of wonderment.

Oh yeah, as far as texture… its ok I guess… not as chewy as my TVP sausages.  Even with double patties on my bun, it kinda disappears.  But.. guh, salty!

But yay for TVP!

Spicey tempeh – burritos!

May 10, 2009 1 comment


Spicy tempeh from the Veganomicon cookbook.  Go buy the book, unless your credit card is supposed to be frozen right now 😉

This is my 2nd time making hot glazed tempeh.  The first time I made it, I made messy rice to go with it.  But I didn’t quite have everything to make the messy rice.

Things I did differently this time included frying the tempeh a bit more hardcore this time.  Last time I was a wimp about it.  I also drizzled leftover marinade sauce on top of the tempeh before flipping it.  I didn’t do this every time I flipped, but maybe half the time.

How I’m eating it tonight: I took a fork and coarsely chopped half of a triangle.  I put a thin layer of whipped cream cheese on a thing of Flatout bread and dumped my chopped tempeh in it, rolled it up and inhaled my creation ^-^

It would have been a lot better with some salad on it, maybe even some flax seeds… but I tossed out my salad today.  It was… slimy and gross.  Which is why I think my beef roll up tasted really wrong the other day.  Eww.  Poor wasted salad 😦

Hahaha.  I had beef on a sandwich yet I cook from the Veganomicon :-p

Anyway.  I’ve ate 2 of these tempeh burritos.  They’re really good! I’m looking forward to more ideas on how to eat this, other than just picking it up and eating it as is.  It tried that and it was way too extra spicey, thanks to my new trick 🙂

If I had more tankatsu sauce it would really make a good burger ^-^
