I don't know what it is with tempeh. But I just love it! It's such an easy food to eat with just anything and there is so much what you can do with it. Sunday dinner was made out of tempeh too;-)
This is a delicious and very easy recipe to make at home. You don't need anything really complicated such as a foodprocessor. All you need are the easy peasy ingredients and a pan;-) What do you need for this Mediterranean tempeh burger?
* serves 1
* 20 minutes
- 100 grams of tempeh cut into some small slices.
- 1 tomato cut into thick slices
- 1 small red onion cut into rings
- 2 handful of fresh & clean spinach
- 6 tblsp of olive oil
- a pinch of pepper & salt
- 1 tsp paprika powder
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/3 tsp cayennepepper
- 0,5 tsp garlic powder
- soy yoghurt
- tzatziki herbs (you can find some in the store but you can use your own dried spices too)
- sandwich of choice (bun)
- extra oil of choice (I used coconut oil)
Put the oliveoil in a bowl and mix with salt, papper, paprika, turmeric, garlic, thyme & cayenne. Spread the spicy oil all over the sliced tempeh on both sides untill it's completely covered in the marinade. Let it marinade for about 10 minutes. Heat a pan and bake the tempeh until crispy on both sides (probably about 5 -7 minutes total). Meanwhile heat the extra oil in a small pan en cook the spinach in it for about 3 - 5 minutes untill it's getting smaller. Serve the tempeh on a bun with the spinach, tomatoes & red onions on top. Mix the yoghurt with the tzatziki herbs and serve on top of the burger & veggies. Enjoy your easy made Mediterranean tempeh burger;-)
You can also grill this tempeh burger on the grill!! Nice!
