Vegan Cheese Burger with Chia Bun (Vegan, Gluten-free)

Last weekend, I was craving for a decent vegan cheese burger as my post-workout meal. So I made one using some leftover veggies in the fridge and my homemade chia burger bun (recipe adapted from The Indie Broccoli). Also, as this is a quick and simple recipe, I did’t use any veggie patties. Instead, I replaced the patty part with a piece of grilled tempeh.


1 Chia burger bun (recipe here)
1/2 avocado
1/2 tempeh
1 Tbsp tamari
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp coconut nectar
1 slice of beetroot
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 slice of tomato
2 Tbsp Follow Your Heart Cheddar Vegan Gourmet Shreds
1 heap Tbsp Follow Your Heart Veganaise
Handful of mixed greens
Nutritional Yeast and black pepper to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 180 °C
    1. Marinate the tempeh with tamari, apple cider vinegar and coconut nectar and beetroot slice in balsamic vinegar for 30 minutes
    1. Bake the tempeh for 15 minutes on both sides
    1. Top the beetroot slice with 2 Tbsp of vegan cheddar cheese and bake it in the oven for 15 minutes (or until the cheddar cheese has melted)
    1. Cut the chia burger bun into half. Spray some water on the bun and reheat in an oven for 3 minutes
    1. Generously spread both sides of the bun with veganaise=
    1. Peel and cut the avocado into slices
    1. Layer the burger as shown in the picture with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and black pepper
    1. Enjoy!
