Tempeh Burger Sans Bun


So Stefan said to me "hey do you think we could turn your tempeh meatball recipe into a burger?". Yes we can, and yes we did.

I am not one of those sad girls who thinks carbs are bad for you. I love bread but I just wasn't feeling a bun tonight so I made this sans bun. 

Instead I had the burger over a bed of spinach and chard topped with avocado and BBQ sauce. I also steamed broccoli for a side.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 tbs olive oil 
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of tempeh 
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs 
  • 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 garlic cloves minced 
  • 2 tbs almond milk / or water
  • 1 tbs soy sauce 



  1. Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor and chop until blended but don't overdo it.
  3. Roll mixture into 1 big ball and  press into a patty, bake for 15 minutes on one side then flip and cook for 15 minutes on the other. 
  4. Once cooked toss in your favorite BBQ sauce and serve!

I hope you enjoy!!!
