1 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion
1 T basil
1/3 c wheat gluten
Up to 3 T water
Topping: coarse cornmeal + thyme + salt (total about 1/8 cup)
Cut your block of tofu in half. Squish and squeeze out ALL of the water. Use firm+ tofu.
Mix ketchup, marmite and spices together. Add to tofu. Squeeze and squish it together. Break all of the tofu apart. Now add your wheat gluten. Squeeze and squish some more.
Start adding the water 1 T at a time. Squish the patty mixture together. You want the mixture to be moist but not wet.
