Vegan Tempeh Burger with Portobello Bun : Lower Carb Recipe


As regular readers know, this blog brings a variety of articles, studies, thoughts, music and recipes! It is presented in a magazine style - we hope something for everyone. Our main focus is about the Low Carb Higher (Healthy) Fat lifestyle, LCHF for short, and you can read/find out more about that here 

In recent months we have seen that more and more we have regular readers, and followers, who choose to eat vegetarian or vegan. With that in mind I am passing on this recipe suggestion from Naomi Sherman who says … "you’ll need two hands to tuck into this incredible vegan burger. Tender, juicy and flavourful tempeh patties are topped with juicy fixings and cradled between an easy Portobello mushroom bun. Low-carb, yes, but it's high protein, nutrients, and flavour, too!"

Ingredients:
Serves Four
16g carbs per serving
16 oz. (450g) tempeh
½ cup (125ml) vegetable stock
2 tbsp. tamari soy sauce
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp. dried thyme
4 tbsp. olive oil, divided

4 whole Portobello mushrooms
4 Romaine lettuce leaves

2 tomatoes, sliced

Instructions:

It seems many companies are now selling plant based burgers, but this is even better. I am going to copy this recipe, Jan. It sounds like something I would be proud to share with my meat loving friends, too.

Thanks for the vegan option, Jan! We've switched to a plant based diet recently, so this recipe is very timely:)

HAHA...when I visit your page I have to laugh, I think to myself that I must be one picky eater! I don't like mushrooms! OOPS...and not a fan of veggie burgers. I am a real beef eater. I think a lot of that has to do with being O positive, needing iron. Thank you for always stopping by the blog and saying hi.

I had to click on tempeh to find out what it is.

God bless.

Oh my! I will try that burger and the soup, I do miss cheese and dislike the vegan supermarket ones. I must try making my own.xxx
