Yum Yum Tempeh PattiesI made these for dinner tonight and it was all worth the wait. These patties were fantastic! I loved the combination of the herbs and Braggs, as well as the texture of the tempeh. I typically use Henry's Tempeh (old family friend of my partner's) and for this recipe, i used his basil option.
I should have read the instructions better because between steaming, mixing, refridgerating, and frying, it all took a bit too long, and i like to eat dinner before Ugly Betty is on. At first i was like, 'what, STEAM tempeh - that's sacriligious' but then it all made sense when i needed to mash it up. I also don't have fennel in the house, but i used tarragon as a substitute. It may have been a bit too salty and i could have let the patty saturate better (they were a bit too fragile) but i loved these and will definitely make them again.
We had a side of sweet potato fries (baked) and a green leafy salad to go with it. Yum. Good thing i followed the recipe and made 10 (ten!!) patties - i'll be eating tempeh patties all weekend and already made a scrumptious sandwich for tomorrow's lunch. If you don't need so many, just half the recipe and and use 1 block of tempeh.
I am unsure why they're called 'sausages' and not just patties...i can't help but picture Oktoberfest sausages when i refer to this recipe - and i know that's wrong on so many levels!
