I’m not really a fan of all the imitation meat products out there because most of them are made with highly processed soy but I’ve read and heard that tempeh is one of the good types of soy. Apparently tempeh undergoes less processing because it’s made with the whole soybean. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed my fair share of soy “chicken” nuggets that are a very scrumptious comfort food. Back to the tempeh, though… it’s soooo good! The tempeh I use is made by Turtle Island Foods, a family-owned company in Oregon. It smells and tastes like bacon. The best part is its good for you! Seven slices is only 130 calories, with 5 g fiber, and 12 g protein!
Tempeh smoky maple bacon
Vegenaise sandwich spread
Pinch sea salt
Prepare tempeh according to package directions. I fry it in a skillet with 2 T coconut oil (for the whole package).
You know the drill. Toast bread and pile ingredients on nice and high! I like to sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over my tomatoes especially since the tempeh isn’t as salty as regular bacon.
Now off you go to whip it up vegan!
