* tempeh bacon
Tempeh is an amazing superfood. You can spend an hour chopping veggies, sauteing perfectly marinated tempeh, maybe its corn crusted or BBQ glazed. Yum. But if you are like me, time is precious and sometimes I am craving a tempeh sandwich or side in just say, two minutes.
Here it is, my two minute tempeh recipe.
(note, this is not the optimal preparation for tempeh, but I find it perfectly tasty for a quick snack or meal.)
Two Minute Maple Marinated Tempeh
Slice into thin strips, one half package of plain tempeh
Toss tempeh and the following ingredients into a microwave-friendly lidded dish.
Add 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp fresh ground pepper, a rough 2-3 tbsp drizzle of maple syrup (honey works too)
Cover lid tightly and shake the container to disperse the ingredients on the tempeh.
Microwave container on high for 1.5-2 minutes. (toss a bit mid-way)
You’re done! This tempeh is great for a quick sandwich or salad topper.
