If you're not already familiar with Tempeh, it is made of cooked and slightly fermented soybeans that are then formed into a patty. Unlike tofu, however, Tempeh does have some flavor on its own, which is a bit on the nutty side. It also has a more "bumpy" texture. This is an easy way to turn tempeh into a tasty meal the whole family should enjoy. Your end result will depend heavily on the BBQ sauce that you choose, so be sure to use your favorite!
8 oz package of Tempeh, crumbled
1 cup prepared BBQ sauce
1/2 cup finely diced red pepper
1/2 cup finely diced green pepper
1/2 cup finely diced onion
2 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp oil
Heat oil in a medium skillet. While it's heating, stir tempeh and BBQ sauce together in a small bowl and set aside. Add pepper and onion to skillet and cook until beginning to brown. Add garlic and cook and stir for 20-30 seconds. Add tempeh mixture and cook until heated through. Serve on burger buns or kaiser rolls.
I like to serve this with oven-baked french fries and no-cook/no-mayo coleslaw (recipe coming soon).
