Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce package tempeh
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

Instructions

  1. Remove tempeh from package and slice into bacon-size strips. I prefer to slice tempeh thinly from the short side to create small bacon pieces. Place in a large, shallow bowl.
  2. Whisk together the soy sauce, cumin, paprika, liquid smoke, apple cider vinegar, and maple syrup and pour over the tempeh. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, turning once.
  3. When ready to fry, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh in a single layer and pan-fry for 3-4 minutes per side until golden and crispy. Remove tempeh from pan and continue with the remaining tempeh. You may need more oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Serve! Enjoy on Tempeh Bacon Sandwiches with lettuce and tomato, or anywhere you enjoy the taste of bacon.
