Barbecue Tempeh Sandwiches
Better than tofu, tempeh, a more natural and whole ingredients lends itself to this tasty dish.
1 cup barbecue sauce, your choice
1 (8 ounce) package tempeh, crumbled
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
4 whole wheat rolls, split and toasted
1. Pour the barbecue sauce into a medium bowl. Crumble the tempeh into the sauce, and let it marinate a little, about 10 minutes.
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the red and green peppers, and the onion. Cook, stirring frequently until tender.
3. Stir in the tempeh and barbecue sauce, and heat through.
4. Spoon the tempeh mixture onto rolls, and serve.
You can any veggies you'd like instead of, or in addition to the peppers and onion.
Like tofu, tempeh is made from soybeans, but tempeh is a whole soybean product with different nutritional characteristics and textural qualities. Tempeh's fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fiber and vitamins compared to tofu, as well as firmer texture and stronger flavour.
