BBQ Tempeh "Cheese" Burgers

Last night we feasted on BBQ Tempeh "Cheese" burgers with all the fixin's. Served on top of a bed of lettuce with raw onion, jalapenos, pickles and fresh tomatoes from the garden. We enjoy these so much that I typically double the recipe!


  • 1 8 oz package tempeh - shredded
  • 2-3 tsp fresh herbs (Oregano, Sage, Parsley, Rosemary, Thyme) - chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 3 garlic cloves - chopped
  • 1/2 onion - finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp kansas style BBQ sauce
  • dash of hot sauce / siracha sauce
  • 3-4 tbsp water 
  • oil for frying (I used sunflower)
I used the following toppings but always love to mix it up!

  • Pickled Jalapeno Slices
  • Red onion - sliced
  • Dill Pickle - sliced
  • Tomato - sliced
  • Handful of Veggie cheese - shredded
  • Handful of lettuce

  1. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and knead for a few minutes to mix everything well.
  2. Shape patties by pressing into a metal ring. 
  3. Preheat oil over med-high heat, cook for 5 min or so each side. Add bbq sauce and veggie cheese to patty, cover with a lid to melt.
