lightly oil your hands and form the mixture into patties.
It should yield about 6 to 8 depending on how their size.

Or just throw them on a grill if making the Vital Wheat Gluten variation

-If using TVP Chunks instead make sure to give them a buzz in the food processor after soaking, so that the texture is similar to that of TVP mince or the rice grains. We want a nice texture not a powder!
- If an extra firm burger patty that holds tighter together is desired, add in the vital wheat gluten or increase the bread crumbs amount until firm to your liking.
