½ tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp smoked paprika
60ml (1/4 cup) mineral water
3 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp BBQ sauce
salt and pepper, to taste

How to prepare
Warm the spaghetti sauce in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the TVP, spices, and water once it's warmed through. Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly. Remove the saucepan from the heat, cover it, and let it aside for 5 minutes. Mix in the flour, nutritional yeast, and BBQ sauce well.
Form into burger patties, dredge in flour on both sides and fry for 5 minutes on each side over medium heat. Serve with a fresh salad or as a burger with a bun, condiments, chips/wedges, etc.
