If you are preparing for a party, tailgate, or event, these burgers are vegetarian friendly and will please everyone who attends. The healthy barbecue sauce is a declicious addition that adds a ton of healthy flavor. 

Ingredients

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 unsweetened smoothie pack, such as Sambazon Unsweetened Smoothie Pack
  • 1/3 Cup natural ketchup
  • 1/2 Teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 sweet Piquanté peppers

For the burgers:

  • Tempeh slices

Directions

For the sauce:

In a saucepan, sauté onion and oil over medium heat until translucent.

Once it’s ready, add the rest of your ingredients and simmer for a few minutes.

Pour the mix into a blender and blend until smooth. 

For the burgers:

Dip tempeh slices in your bbq sauce and put them on the grill.

While they cook, be sure to add more sauce every time you flip them. After about 10 minutes, add your buns to the grill so they can toast.

Assemble burgers with romaine lettuce leaves, tomato slices, avocado, and a little more bbq sauce.

To add lots of flavor without a whole lot of fuss, try purchasing some steak seasoning.

BBQ Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
