Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Bring your vegetable broth to a boil, then pour it over TVP. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
    1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup TVP
  • In a food processor, place in all ingredients including rehydrated TVP. Pulse until everything is well combined and finely chopped.
    3.5 oz brown button mushrooms, ½ cup vital wheat gluten, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon smoked paprika, 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, salt and pepper
  • Knead the dough for 1-2 minutes.
  • Scoop out about ½ cup of mixture. Using wet hands, roll it into a compact ball, before pressing it down to a disk shape. Repeat for the remaining mixture, and you should be able to make 4 patties.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, flipping them on the halfway mark. You vegan chicken patties are ready to be enjoyed!

Notes

Helpful tips 
  • Do not over-process your mixture. They should still have some texture, not completely pureed.
  • For a chewier burger, you can knead your burger mixture for up to 5 minutes.
  • Make sure that your hands are damp when shaping vegan chicken patties. It helps prevent them from cracking at the edge.
  • Feel free to make 6-8 smaller patties instead of 4 large ones.
 
Storing - Vegan chicken burger will last in the fridge for 3-4 days, and in the freezer for up to 3 months. Store them in a sealed container or zip-top bag.

Reheating - To reheat, let frozen patties thaw completely in the fridge overnight, or on countertop for a few hours. You can then proceed on to heat then in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or pan-fry them for 1-2 minutes on each side.

To speed up the heating process, defrost them using your microwave's 'thaw' function, before microwaving them on high for 15-30 seconds, or until they are thoroughly heated.
