Grilled Tempeh Burgers

Serves 4
Time 1 hr 10 min
Topped with your choice of burger fixings, grilled tempeh makes a hearty, healthy veggie burger. (Steaming it first makes it more digestible.) You can also try this tempeh stuffed into whole grain pita bread or sliced and wrapped in a tortilla with cheese, guacamole and salsa.
Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 1 (8-ounce) package tempeh halved lengthwise, then crosswise into 4 pieces
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium tamari
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 whole grain hamburger buns
  • Topping Suggestions (select any)
  • Grainy mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Guacamole or avocado slices
  • Sliced jalapeño peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Butter or romaine lettuce
  • Red onion slices
  • Sauerkraut
  • Sliced dill or sweet pickles
Method

Steam tempeh pieces in or over simmering water for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a small plate. Poke small holes in tempeh with a fork on both sides and set aside.

Mix tamari, mirin, garlic powder and onion powder in a wide, shallow dish to make a marinade. Add tempeh, turning to coat, cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Grill tempeh until browned, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Alternately, heat a small amount of canola oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook tempeh for 3 to 4 minutes on both sides, until browned. Serve tempeh on buns with your choice of toppings.
