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.
The caramelized onion looks delicious! Check out my blog post from yesterday 4-16 and collect a Versatile Blogger Award... you deserve it. :)

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.

So glad that you had a good time in NYC--this burger looks amazing, would never have known that it was tempeh!
I have yet to try tempeh, but this looks delish! I love caramelized onions!
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.
