Since I have been vegan for two years I find I do not eat too much soy products. However, this is one of my non -vegetarian friends favourites. Yes the burger is made out of TVP,breadcrumb,ketchup,onion,garlic,paprika, a little curry powder (yes I like curry alot), fresh basil, blackpepper, mustard and some liquid amino acids. I sometimes add a tsp of Barbadian seasoning and some grated carrots. I do not add any salt because some of the TVP I get in Barbados comes pre-seasoned in its dry form.I find the burgers are not to sticky and if you like you can roll them with some floured hands. I grilled my burgers and I brushed them with olive oil. You do not have to put any oil if you do not want to. I topped my veggie burger with sweet relish, vegan cheese and fried onions. For the bun I combine in my food processer some tomato,olive oil, garlic, fresh basil from my garden and a little salt. I spread this on my buns and grilled them too. Be careful not to load on too much tomato mixture because it tends to make your bun soggy. For the fries I baked- grilled them. These are sweet potatos actually cut into medium wedges. I mix olive oil ,sea salt, Bajan seasoning and some cayenne pepper. I put them in just like that in their raw marinated state and I put them to broil on low. Be sure to watch them they cook up quickly. Sometimes I double season them and put them back to broil again.
