  • Soak TVP crumbles in boiling vegetable stock. Let soak for 5-10 minutes.
    *If you don't have pre-cooked rice, make that as well.
  • Once TVP crumbles are rice are ready, add everything into a food processor. Pulse and then blend, scraping down the sides as needed.
    Tip: We use a 7 cup processor and have found it easier to add half the rice and TVP, then the rest of the ingredients, then the remaining rice and TVP. This helps ensure the ingredients are well combined since it fills it pretty full.
  • Once blended well, remove the center of the food processor and form 6 equal size patties.
  • To a skillet* over medium heat, add a small amount of oil and then cook the burgers 3-4 minutes on each side until a nice sear has developed and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • Repeat until all burgers have been cooked, then serve on buns or lettuce wraps with your favorite burger toppings and sauces.



*These can also be baked in the oven, cooked in an air fryer or on the grill.
