Tempeh Burgers

tempeh burgerThese are the easiest, most delicious veggie burgers I have ever had. My family doesn’t normally like tempeh, but they love these.

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 slice dry bread, crumbled or 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

8 ounces tempeh, crumbled

1 egg

2 tablespoons tomato sauce or marinara sauce

If you have a food processor, use it to mince the onion and garlic. Add bread and grind to crumbs. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until combined. If you don’t have a food processor, place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands. Form mixture into four patties.

Warm a skillet to medium heat. Pour in enough oil to coat pan. Cook burgers until golden brown on both sides. Serve on hamburger buns or in pita pockets with burger condiments.
