Tempeh 1/4 Pounder (Faux Chicken Sandwich)

Tempeh ¼ Pounder Does this satisfy a craving or what? It is absolutely one of the best vegan burgers I have ever had. Simmering the tempeh in broth prior to pan frying “opens up” the tempeh and also softens it, allowing for a ton of flavor to be added into the burger. I dredged mine […]
