  1. Combine tempeh, tamari, garlic, sage, paprika, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan. Simmer, stirring tempeh frequently, until completely reduced, about 7 minutes.
  2. Stir flour into tempeh mixture. Let cool in the saucepan until safe to handle, about 15 minutes. Shape into 2-inch patties.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat and grease with olive oil. Pan-fry the patties until well-browned, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Instead of pan-frying, you can put 1 tablespoon olive oil into the cooled tempeh, shape into patties, and bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 400 degrees F (204 degrees C) for 20 minutes, turning once.
