This is an excellent way to eat tempeh!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) package tempeh, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons liquid amino acid supplement
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 2 pita breads, cut in half
  • soy mayonnaise
  • 4 thin slices Swiss cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until they start to brown. Pour in half of the liquid aminos and cook for 1 minute. Flip the tempeh slices and cook until toasted, 3 to 4 more minutes. Pour in the remaining liquid aminos and cook for 1 minute. Remove the tempeh, and set it aside.
  2. 2 In the same skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Cook the onion, green pepper, and jalapeno until the vegetables have softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. 3 Spread each pita half with 1 teaspoon soy mayonnaise. Stuff each pita with several slices of tempeh, peppers and onions, and a piece of Swiss cheese. Toast the sandwiches in a toaster oven for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

  1. Its unusual for recipes on this site to be as bad as this one. I followed the recipe exactly BTW ( I love Temeph). Recipe was too salty with the Amino's. I will finish it but never use this marinade again. Yuk!
  2. The only thing that I changed was that used mini sweet peppers and it turned out delicious!!!
  3. These are awesome! I used tamari instead of amino acids. I also added some sliced portabella mushrooms to the green pepppers and onions. They are a big hit for both kids (omitted jalepeno) and adults!
  4. I'm giving this five star for a very simple reason that someone could come up how to use tempeh in a sandwich. I come from Java Indonesia and I grew up eating that as a cheap substitute to meat. usually I would just slice them into 1-1.5cm thick marinate it with watered down mashed garlic - Read more ...
  5. Delicious. I used less jalapeno than recommended but used a spicy tempeh from the vegetarian section of the grocery store. Liquid amino is just a vegan type of soy sauce so substitute soy as necessary. And I was out of soy mayo so I used light Miracle Whip.
  6. I didn't have either sesame oil or liquid amino acid supplement and I wasn't sure what valid substitutions would be so I used what I had on hand: canola oil and flax seed oil. I may not have gotten all the intended health benefits but it tasted great (and I got my omega-3's to boot)!
  7. Thanks for a nice casual meal recipe. My kids who had been very resistant to even trying tempeh asked me to make these again! I made them just as described and they turned out good. I made these on a Saturday before we left for a busy day of errands and it satisfied the kids - Read more ...
