Easiest way to prepare tempeh. Pile it on a BLT (or, more accurately, a TLT). Even non-vegetarians will (maybe) like this. Soy sauce can be used in place of tamari if desired. Stores well in a covered container in the refrigerator.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or more as needed
  • 1 (8 ounce) package tempeh, cut into 1/8-inch thick strips
  • 2 dashes tamari, or more to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook tempeh in the hot oil until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drizzle tamari over cooked tempeh.

  1. There are more tempeh bacon recipes than there are stars in the Sky. This one is the worst.
  2. This is good. I used a pastry brush to spread the tamari sauce evenly. I think adding a couple of drops of liquid smoke would give it more of a bacon flavor. I added a few dashes of bitters and that upped the flavor a bit. Thank you for the recipe.
