Vegetarian / Vegan: Vegetarian

Ingredients:

10-12 kale stems, chopped
10 shitake mushrooms, quartered, lightly salted
1 small white onion, 1/2 inch dice
1.5 cup packed spinach
1 cup beans, cooked al dente (any type of bean will work)
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup barley, prepared
1/2 cup rehydrated bulgur wheat
2 tsp ground flax seed
4 tsp ground TVP
2 tsp gluten flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Saute kale stems over medium high heat until slightly browned. Set aside. Caramelize onion over medium heat and then set aside. Bake the mushrooms for about 15 minutes to remove their moisture. Steam the spinach, shock it with cold water, squeeze as much moisture from it as possible, and then roughly chop it.

Add the kale stems, mushrooms, onion, spinach, and beans to a food processor and pulse until combined. With the food processor running, add the oil.

Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and stir in remaining ingredients. The mixture should be just moist enought to form into patties. If it is too wet, add another tsp or two of gluten flour.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and lightly brown both sides of the burger patty. Place in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes, turning half way through, until firm.

I really like that you use kale,beans and the mushrooms and not Tofu since I cannot eat more twice a month. I also need gluten free products can this be made without flour? What is TVP?
