Vegetarian TVP Veggie Burgers

TVP vegetarian veggie burgers

 These vegetarian TVP veggie burgers are high in protein and pack a bit of a kick. Feel free to omit the chili powder and cayenne if you prefer a milder veggie burger. Note that these TVP burgers are vegetarian, but since they do call for an egg as a binder, they are not vegan.

Wondering about whether or not vegetarians eat eggs? Here's more on the debate as to whether eggs are vegetarian or not, plus add your own opinion here.

  • 2/3 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 - 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • dash salt and pepper, to taste
  • oil for frying (optional)


Combine the TVP (textured vegetable protein) and the vegetable broth in a large bowl. Allow the TVP to rehydrate for at least 15 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Drain any excess moisture.

Combine the TVP with the remaining ingredients and stir to combine well. You may need to add a little more or less than 1 cup flour to get the mixture to the right sticky consistency.

Form the mixture into patties and fry in oil on each side until lightly browned, or, grill on a lightly greased barbecue.
