VEGAN YEAST "CHEESE

Form into thin patties (the thinner the better) and fry in a lightly oiled iron or "no stick" pan. Serve on kaiser roll with sauteed onions, dill pickle slices, ketchup, Nayonaise and Vegan Yeast "Cheese" spread.
Vegan Yeast Cheese:
Mix dry ingredients in sauce pan. Whisk in water. Cook over medium heat while whisking until mixture thickens and bubbles. Cook 30 seconds more. Remove from heat. Whip in margarine and mustard. Let cool slightly.
Another entry in the "Build a Better Burger Contest" sponsored by the North American Vegetarian Society.
Since entering the contest, the contestant has reworked his recipe, eliminating the green peppers and green beans, reducing the rolled oats to ½ cup, adding ½ cup corn meal, and replacing the seasoned salt and vegetable broth with tamari, dijon mustard, tarragon, basil and parsley.
The recipe was entered in the contest without the vegan yeast cheese.
