Vegetarian Cooking: Tempeh BBQ Sandwiches

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).
