Homemade High Protein Vegan Burgers

Who doesn’t love having burgers for dinner?!? Especially when they are healthy, vegan and high protein. These burgers are Asian inspired and are made with a few simple ingredients such as tofu, tempeh and natural peanut butter. These burgers are so simple to make and perfect for a weeknight meal when you are pressed for time or wanting a lazy night in on a Friday after a long week.

You can have these burgers on their own, in a salad, with bread rolls/pita bread or my personal favourite in a Buddha bowl 😍 The sky is the limit when it comes to pairing these burgers for a meal idea. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. As always, please let me know what you think of this recipe.
