Super Tasty Vegan Tempeh Burger | Recipe

Whether you’re vegetarian, veg-curious or wondering what the heck to serve to your veggie friends at your next BBQ; this super tasty vegan burger is the answer.

When we went looking for a great vegan burger recipe our first stop was to Gigi Cohen, chef and personality-at-large at Cafe Juicy Lotus in Montreal’s Monkland. She offered up her coveted Tempeh Burger Recipe (it’s a big seller at the cafe) and showed us how it’s done.

Head to the freezer aisle and grab yourself some fermented tofu (so good for you), some fresh veg and flax meal and you’re ready to start making patties. Gigi says if you don’t have a food processor or blender, you can finely chop the veggies and kneed the mixture together. She also suggests that you use tinfoil under the burger to ensure you don’t lose any of that super tasty burger to the BBQ flames. Besides, vegetarians know that it’s the safest way to cook on a foreign BBQ — especially at our meat-loving friend’s house.

Finish this recipe off with some Vegan Mayonnaise (check the link at the end of the video for a recipe) and fresh produce on a toasty bun. This recipe is totally vegan and the burger itself is also gluten-free and lactose-free. Oh, and super tasty!

This is a great recipe to make ahead and pop in the freezer so you are always ready for spontaneous BBQ invitations.
