The Recipe (makes 4 patties)
1 cup of TVP granules
7/8 cup water
1 packet of Taco Seasoning
1/2 cup Wheat Gluten Flour
1/2 cup Salsa of Choice
1 tbsp Hot sauce (like Tapatio)
Reconstitute TVP by placing it in a microwave safe bowl, pouring water over it, covering it TIGHTLY with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 5-6 minutes. Mix in taco seasoning, then mix in the flour, salsa and hot sauce. Let sit for about 20 minutes. (You may refrigerate it for later at this point if you want to.) Divide mixture into 4 equal parts. Form burger patties. Prepare as desired. They can be baked at 350 for about 15 minutes or until just crisp on the outsides, fried (in oil or non-stick spray) or grilled. If grilling, us a foil liner so they don't fall apart. Garnish with onions, jalapeno, sour cream, salsa and avocado. YUM!
Yield: 4 burgers
