Pinkie Winky Recipe for Boca Burgers

Hello, I am looking for a home made version of a Boca Burger?? Does anyone know if there is a way to make them? Or, any other type of meatless burger that still includes a form of protein. Thanks for any info. on this.

I can't find an exact recipe for a boca burger no matter how I search. Here are several recipes for meatless burgers:

Meatless Burgers

12 ounces TSPor TVP crumbles*
1/2 cup reduced fat/cholesterol egg substitute
1 slice whole wheat bread (or 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup chopped onion
Nonstick cooking spray

Tear bread into pieces and place in a blender or food processor. Pulse blend into breadcrumbs. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Form into 6 patties. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat until hot. Add burgers and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Burgers can also be grilled. Serve on buns with your favorite condiments.

Makes 6 Servings

*Textured soy protein, often called TSP (also known as textured vegetable protein or TVP), is made from defatted soy flour that is compressed and processed into granules or chunks. Tempeh is an Indonesian food made from the whole soy bean. It is fermented into a "cake" that can be eaten alone or added to soups and stews. Both TSP and tempeh are often used as a protein alternative by vegetarians.

Chickpea Burgers

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces Salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tomato, chopped (with juices)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley
3 cups cooked chick peas
Freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of cayenne
About 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
Spray oil or olive oil for cooking the burgers

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with 6 cups cold salted water. Boil the potatoes until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add the onion, pepper, garlic, tomatoes, and cumin and cook over medium heat until lightly browned and dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, parsley, chick peas, and potatoes and simmer for a few minutes. Add salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.

Coarsely puree the chick pea mixture in a food processor, adding the bread crumbs as a thickener. (Run the machine in short bursts and don't over process.) Wet your hands and form the mixture into 8 patties. Arrange the patties on a plate spread with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.

Cook the burgers following the instructions above. Serve the burgers on buns with onion, tomato, lettuce, and your favorite condiments.

Makes 8 burgers

Four Seasons Vegetable Burgers

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup coarsely grated carrots
1 cup coarsely grated turnips
1 cup coarsely grated zucchini
1/2 cup coarsely grated beets
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup instant rolled oats, soaked in 1/2 cup water for 5 minutes, then drained
1-1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup cooked rice
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill, tarragon, or basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Spray oil for sautéing or grilling

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add the grated vegetables, garlic, and cumin and cook over medium heat until the vegetables are tender and the liquid has evaporated, 10 to 15 minutes. Do not let brown. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.

Wring the water out of the oats. Stir the oats into the vegetable mixture with the remaining ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Wet your hands and form the mixture into 8 thick burgers. Arrange the burgers on a plate spread with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.

Grill the vegetable burgers as described above, spraying the vegetable grate with oil. Alternatively, arrange the burgers on an oiled non-stick baking sheet, lightly spray the tops with oil, and broil. To sauté, add a teaspoon or two of oil to a non-stick skillet. Cook the burgers over medium heat until crusty. Whichever method you use, you'll need about 4 to 6 minutes per side cooking time. Turn the burgers with a spatula as gently as you can. Serve the burgers on buns with onion, tomato, lettuce, and your favorite condiments.
