Black Bean and TVP Patties, v0.1


So I've made a fair amount of vegan food from recipes that I'm getting adventourus.  So here is my first 100% random pantry grab recipe.This was an experiment that turned out pretty tasty, so I thought I'd share and ask for input and or tips.

I layered it on a warm pita with a little veganaise, sliced tomato, and baby mixed greens, sprinkled with some Nutr yeast flakes. Ate it folded like a soft taco




  • 1c Water
  • 1tsp Better Than Bouillon no beef
  • 2tbsp Brags Liquid Aminos, or Soy Sauce
  • 1c TVP (dry volume)
  • 1can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1tsp Cumin
  • 1tsp Onion Powder
  • 1tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1tsp Paprika
  • 1/2tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1/4c Ground Flax Seed
  • 1/4c Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/4c Vital Wheat Gluten


  1. Bring water to a boil, (I used the microwave and did this step all in a 2c measuring cup) then add in the bouillon and stir to dissolve. Add the Brags or soy sauce, and then add your cup of TVP and mix. Let this sit 5 minutes to rehydrate.
  2. Mash up your rinsed black beans in a mixing bowl (or stand mixer as I did), add in the TVP and spices, mix till well combined. Mix in the Flax Seed and Nutritional Yeast, finally add the Vital Wheat gluten and mix till well combined.
  3. Makes about 6 patties, cook on a stick resistant pan or griddle with a little olive oil. I did mine on my grill press using the griddle plates, so took about 4-5 minutes to cook. I would guestimate about 4 min per side otherwise. I froze the extra patties to use for a quick meal later, just like you would one of those store bought patties with the crazy ingredients list.
