….crumbled on top of a giant salad, which is what we did with our leftovers 🙂

Back to the burgers tho, here is what you do:

1 package organic non genetically modified tempeh, Crumble with you hands (kinda gnarly but does the job) or in a food processor (less gnarly but then it’s one more thing to wash) predicaments!
1/2 large purple or white onion finely chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
1 zucchini shredded
1 carrot chopped quite small
1 free range organic egg
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
3 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 TBS Tamari or soy sauce
3 or so TBS paprika
1 TBS Dijon
Pepper and salt to taste
Chilli flakes
Handful of seeds (sunflower, pumpkin etc)
1/2 cup mix of oats, buckwheat flour, chickpea flour (or whatever flour etc you wanna use)

Mix it all up and form into patties. Bake in a moderate oven for about half an hour, flipping half way through.
Omit or add things to your liking!! That’s the beauty Of veggie burgers, you can get as creative as you want and they usually turn out pretty good. Extra veggies, different spices, fresh herbs, chopped nuts?! Go crazy!!
