I am someone who gets circumstantially lazy! I discovered I loved cooking, but then as pointed out by a friend, then I should love doing it all time right? The thing is I dont! I hate cooking when its only for me! All of a sudden, the concept of going to Kitchen to fix something for me seems so mundane and tiresome! Thats when I go for quick fixes, where I dont have to do lots of chopping,stirring blah blah!
Sandwiches always come to my rescues ( If you said Upma and Kitchidi,stop right there, pls dont mention it! I had them enough to last a lifetime! )Yesterday it was the same story altogether and I thought of fixing up something easy and fast - not too heavy and not too light. And thats where Soy Burger comes in. There are many variations for making it,but I went for something basic and simple.
Soak the soy chunks in warm water for 10min or until soft.
Mash potatoes and mix rest of the ingredients in there.Grind the soy chunks and add it to the mixture. Mix well. If dry, add couple spoons of water, or if too watery add soy flour. The consistency should allow us to make Patties.
Grease a non stick with PAM spray and little Olive oil. Or you can use more Oil for shallow fry/deep fry. Place 2-4 Patties at a time and turn when browned.
Preheat Oven 400F. Take a Ciabbata roll, cut into it halfway leaving the edge fixed. Place one provolone slice,place the soy patty above it. Place the rolls in the oven for 5 minutes when the cheese slowly starts to melt. Take it out immedientely and top it off with some Ketchup. I like it when the cheese just starts to get gooey. Its optional. It can be had cold without placing it the oven or heated a bit more so that the cheese can melt completely. You can add Salad green too, if you have them.
Thank you so much Sukshma. I am glad to hear it :) --DK
