BBQ Tempeh Burgers

This was delicious! I’ve never been crazy about barbecue sauce because they tend to be sweet but sometimes it just really rounds out a hot summer day. I found this recipe and couldn’t get it out of my head. I modified it slightly and it did not disappoint.

Mix the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and add the sliced tempeh, making sure its completely coated. Leave to marinade in the refrigerator for 2 – 4 hours.

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Lay the tempeh on a foil lined baking sheet making sure not to crowd it. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until it’s caramelized. It’s okay if it’s dark in some spot, the sugar in the barbecue sauce will darken quickly.

Add the tempeh to your buns, top with veggies and don’t you dare forget that Sriracha ranch!
