2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Start the tempeh

  • Using the coarse holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the tempeh. 

In a large frying pan, combine the tempeh and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the tempeh, transfer to a large bowl, and pat dry. Wipe out the pan. While the tempeh is cooking, prepare the remaining burger mixture.


Make the patties

In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mirepoix, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in the miso-mustard blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl with the tempeh and add the flaxseed blend and arrowroot powder. Season with salt and pepper and stir until combined; let cool slightly. 

Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, smash the tempeh mixture until well combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into two [four] 1-inch-thick patties. While the tempeh mixture is cooling, prepare the salad.


Make the garden salad

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber crosswise into enough ¼-inch-thick slices to measure 1 cup [2 cups]. 
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.

In a medium bowl, stir together half the Dijon vinaigrette and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] water; season to taste with salt and pepper (set aside the remaining vinaigrette for serving). Add the mixed greens, cucumber, and tomatoes and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Cook the patties

In the same pan used to soften the tempeh, warm 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the patties and cook, turning once, until a dark golden brown crust forms, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.


Toast the buns

In the same pan used for the burgers, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. 


Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on individual plates. Top each with a burger, as much of the remaining vinaigrette as you like, and a spoonful of the salad. Close with the bun tops. Serve the remaining salad on the side.
