Tempeh Bacon

Part of a delicious weekend breakfast! Shown here with steamed baby spinach. 

Tempeh Bacon
Serves 4 (or two greedy people like me)

1 packet Tempeh
1 Tbls oil for frying

2 Tbls Braggs liquid aminos or Tamari soy sauce
1/2 tsp Liquid smoke.
1 Tbls water or coconut amino
1 Tbls BBQ sauce
1 Tbls maple syrup


Steam the tempeh for 10-20 minutes.
You can skip this step if you don't mind the regular taste of tempeh but it helps to kill the bitterness.
Slice tempeh thinly and put aside.
Whisk all marinade ingredients together and place in a seal-able container or a ziplock bag.
Add tempeh to the marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (best over night), turning occasionally.
Drain tempeh from marinade and pat dry with a paper towel.
Heat oil in frying pan on a medium heat.
Add tempeh and brown on each side, around 3 minutes on each side.
Once brown serve with other breakfast items.
