How is August looking into its last sweet half? I don’t know about you (and feel free to tell me), but I feel like suddenly I have to summer it up to the tittles. And in that spirit, I’ve been spending as many minutes of the day outside as possible. I am not back and ready to rock it on my bicycle just yet (still in accident recovery mode), but walks are sweet, as are evenings on our porch, eating, laughing and just plain old loving the loveliness.
As we do spend many an evening on the porch, with the sites and smells of our neighbourhood wafting over, meat seems to be the scent of choice most often. Even as a non BBQ meat eater (hi cancer, you’re not invited to play with me), I do still get cravings.
Hence my creation of a serious burger. I wanted the real deal. A big juicy burger patty that I could load up with all my fave toppings, fancy mustards and the like, have a real toasted bun and even a side of my fave sweet potato fries and cashew ketchup.
This burger loving recipe was inspired by a tempeh burger I had down in California when I was there for a conference in April. Tired of eating superfood smoothies and raw salads for every meal in our hotel room, we snuck out for lunch. I’ve been thinking about a proper burger since then. I do love the veggie versions too, of course but there is something fantastic about adding ground tempeh to the mix. It’s just got a meaty vibe to it.
When I took my first bite of this wonder burger, I declared this meat loving friendly (meaning the meat burger type would love this equally). I was greeted by head shakes, but whatever. It’s amazing.
Here is my recipe for the Meghan Telpner Certified World’s Greatest Tempeh Burger.
