Tempeh Cheeseburgers from Slate
Yield: 4 burgers
Time: About 1 hour, largely unattended
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pound tempeh, cut into 4 equal squares
4 ounces cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
6 hamburger buns, toasted if desired
Lettuce leaves, tomato slices, pickle slices, mayonnaise, mustard, and/or ketchup as desired
1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Whisk together the soy sauce, oil, shallot, garlic, honey, and thyme in a medium bowl. Put the tempeh pieces in a 9-inch square pan in a single layer and pour the marinade over them. Bake for 30 minutes, then turn the tempeh pieces over. Continue to bake until the tempeh has absorbed all the marinade, 20 to 30 more minutes.
2. Top the tempeh pieces with the cheddar and continue to bake until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the tempeh burgers on the hamburger buns with as much or as little lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayonnaise, mustard and/or ketchup as you like.
