Tempeh Burgers or Balls!

Although not a common item in most households in North America, tempeh, with its distinctively nutty taste and nougat-like texture, is increasing in popularity. It is a highly nutritious fermented food made from soybeans and its high protein content makes it a wonderful substitute for meat. This is a great way to incorporate tempeh into your diet. Serve with tomato sauce and whole grain pasta or enjoy them with a salad and hummus!

1 package of tempeh
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp almond butter
1 Tbsp flaxseeds, ground, + 1/4 cup of water (mixed thoroughly as egg replacement)
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp arrowroot flour
1 Tbsp water (or as needed to make batter stick)

• Process tempeh in a food processor or chop finely to resemble a ground meat like thing
• Mix in with all other ingredients
• Roll in to balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. To make burgers press down on them to make them flat.
• Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, or until browned on top
• Allow to cool
• To reheat – heat on your stove top with ½ tsp of coconut oil
These can be frozen for a quick meal on a busy day!

This is an amazing website with create and healthy recipes to make eating nutritious foods fun!! What a concept?
