Tasty Tempeh Patties

What's tempeh?

It's a fermented soy product used mostly in savoury meals and can be an alternative to meat in some recipes (e.g. mince patties or spaghetti Bolognese). It provides a good source of protein, calcium, iron and manganese.


This is a recipe even meat eaters will love!


Ingredients:

  • 200 g tempeh, grated

  • 200 g bread (I use gluten free), made into bread crumbs

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 onion, diced and lightly fried

  • 1/2 tablespoon Tamari soy sauce

  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs

  • Extra olive oil for frying


Method:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together until it forms a mixture which holds together well. If time permits, place in fridge for 30 minutes and to allow flavours to combine.

  2. Make into medium sized patties (approx a tablespoon of mixture per pattie)

  3. Heat flying pan on medium heat, add desired amount of olive oil. Cook patties for approx 2-3 minutes either side until golden and cooked through

Serving suggestion:

Serve with sweet potato (kumara), salad and sweet chilli sauce.
