Something crazy happened to me this morning. Last night I went to a bar that specializes in disgusting, greasy, clog-your-arteries-with-a-glance patty melts. This morning I woke up craving a patty melt. I don't know that I've even ever had one in my life. I'm not really sure what it is, but I know it consists of everything I would never eat. So how could I possibly make a vegan patty melt? I'm not much of a fake meat eater, but I do have a big bag of TVP in my cabinet, so I was hoping I could season that and somehow make it into a patty of sorts. I have all the normal vegan pantry staples of beans, nutritional yeast, Ener-G, and every spice known to man. I'm looking for some recommendations on how to make TVP into an acceptable patty and also recommendations for the best mock cheese for this type of situation. I have some white beans soaking, so it would be great if the cheez could be made out of white beans.
Thank you in advance!
