Tempeh Chickpea Fritter Patty Burger. Vegan



Since the superfun Apple Chickpea Fries were such a hit.. Here is another Chickpea creation!!
VeganMofo Post 10! Tempeh cooked in Garam masala broth, then dipped in spicy chickpea batter and shallow fried! Serve these as is, as a snack with ketchup, or top some baby greens salad!
Burger seen below Topped with some tomatoes, green chutney and Sriracha or sauce of choice. You can serve some Apple fries on the side.:)

Tempeh is naturally fermented Soybean Patty. We usually get 3 grain Organic Tempeh which has Brown Rice, Barley and Millet. Tempeh is tastier than Tofu, least processed, naturally fermented and healthier form of Soybean. Use gluten free only soy Tempeh on gluten free bread, to make this burger glutenfree!

    That looks soooper yum!! I’m a huge fan of tempeh – the three grain kind in particular. :)

    Sadly tempeh isn’t commercially available here in India yet. So I’ve been thinking of ordering some tempeh starter online and trying my hand at making some at home myself.

    I’ve been hearing a lot about this sriracha sauce lately. Sounds so yummy! Is it better than tabasco?

    Thank you Gigi!

    Thanks Susmitha.. i guess you can replace the patty with tofu or seitan. or make your own tempeh:) that should be fun!

    Sriracha and Tabasco are similar, just different chillies and some different spices.. both will work fine!
