The 3 Ingredient Tempeh Burger

The 3 Ingredient Veggie Burger

So I’ve been blogging for almost a year now and this is my very first veggie burger post! I’m surprised you all held out this long! I love veggie burgers but the stars have to align in order for me to make them. I need to have all the right left-over ingredients and no two burgers have ever been alike because I just use up what I have on hand. This is not that kind of veggie burger. This burger is made up of just three ingredients. This is the kind of burger you can quickly whip up on a weeknight. I had to hose myself and my camera off after this shoot. So much juicy goodness everywhere!

Veggie Burger Patty

1 package (8oz) tempeh

1 egg

1/2 cup harissa

a bit of salt and pepper



burger buns


red onion



ketchup, mayo, mustard



Cut up the tempeh into pieces and steam it in a steamer or in a covered pan with a little bit of water for 5 to 10 minutes or until tender. Place the ingredients for the burger in your food processor and blend for about 30 seconds or until you start to see it coming together. Make four patties and place them on parchment papered baking sheet. Bake in pre-heated oven at 400F for 15 minutes. Assemble burger as shown.



Take your patty over the top by adding a dash of liquid smoke, some hot sauce and teaspoon of honey or maple syrup.

    GIRL! this is freakin’ awesome! I love homemade veggie burgers but always find them painfully time consuming. But this looks like an easy project for any night of the week!

    So simple. Making tonight but substituting a thick salsa for harissa (since I don’t have any harissa right now in the frig). Thanks for the idea!

      Thanks Lisa! Sometimes I use this roasted red pepper spread from trader joe’s when I don’t have harissa – it works great! A thick salsa should work fine too! Have a great weekend!
