Though I eat plenty of tempeh, I have thought of making burger from it. This is simply superb and my kind of food for sure. Actually I rather have the prepared tempeh without the burger. Tempeh is not only nutritionist but healthy with protein content.

When I see a recipe with temph I always say, I am going to try this, then I forget because temph is not available in every grocery store.
These burgers is a good idea to start with

What a healthy burger! I should really try this the next time I make burgers.
Glad to know you had a great time in NYC. Been there once and I loved it.

I have not cooked with tempeh much- this looks so flavorful! I may be tempted to try this soon. Will have to put tempeh on the grocery list. Your pictures of Chelsea Market look beautiful- wish I was there. That's what I love about the big cities- so much variety of food to experience.
