What You Do:
1. In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together TVP granules and broth, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 5 to 6 minutes.

2. In a flat-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes.

3. In a food processor, combine TVP, sautéed mushroom mixture, vital wheat gluten, breadcrumbs, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, salt, chipotle powder, cumin, pepper, nutritional yeast, tamari, and tomato paste. Process until well combined. If mixture is crumbly, add a tablespoon vegetable broth or water until mixture has a thicker consistency.
