Print Friendly and PDF

Another fun Tempeh Burger!! A complete quick and yummy vegan meal!
Tempeh (/ˈtɛm.peɪ/), or tempe (Indonesian), is a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form, similar to a very firm vegetarian burger patty.

Cut Garden Veggie Tempeh(organic) into the patty size for the bread slice.
Marinate the tempeh in jamaican jerk spice(or any other fave spice mix), salt, pepper, lemon juice and garlic powder for half an hour. Rub the spices over all sides of tempeh and let sit covered.
In a pan, add some oil and cook red bell pepper slices for 3 minutes( slices of half a medium red bell pepper).
Take half of red bell pepper slices and add to blender. Keep rest for topping the sandwich later.
In the same pan, roast 4-6 cashews, red chili flakes(1/2 teaspoon or to taste) and 2 garlic cloves in the remaining oil for a minute.
Add cashews and garlic to blender. Add some salt and pepper and some vinegar if you want a ranch kind of sauce. Blend to a creamy puree with a little water and keep aside. Thats your mayo!
In the pan, add some onions and asparagus and cook until golden(4-5 minutes). Keep aside.
In a small pan, add some oil and the tempeh. Add water(2/3 cup) and cook on low, covered for 7-8 minutes.
Cook covered for 7-8 minutes each side, until all water is absorbed! Once done, You can additionally grill the tempeh a little to blacken it or get grill marks.
Serve the hot tempeh on toasted Multigrain Loaf.
Top tempeh with the creamy Red Bell pepper Mayo, Roasted Red pepper, golden cooked onions and asparagus!!
Sprinkle some salt, pepper on the arrangement before adding the second bread slice on top and then bite into it and burn your palate!
