Soya Burgers- vegan

These burgers have a light, open texture that would go really well with relishes, salads and buns for a barbecue.
Sorry to tease, but this is yet another picture without a proper recipe- life was too full of teenagers,  family meals, gardening and shopping this weekend to write stuff down! But we can tell you what went into these yummy burgers, minus the exact amounts and proportions:


To make 8 or 9:
Finely grated veg such as sweet potato, 3 carrots or 3 parsnips
pre-soaked unflavoured TVP mince- maybe around 150g dry weight
tofu drained but not pressed, from 1 l soya milk (about a cupful of mashed tofu)
tomato puree or passata to bind
a little soy sauce
black pepper
seasalt
dried or fresh herbs- we used dried oregano and fresh rosemary
a little olive oil for frying
  • Gently fry the grated veg in the olive oil until soft.
  • Mix everything together.
  • Use a crumpet ring or similar to mould into patty shapes and grill on both sides. Yum!
