BBQ tempeh is simple to prep, nutritious, flavorful and a great plant-based protein alternative to cook on grill or stove top and as part of any meal.
Prep Time:15 min
Cook Time:10 min
Total Time:25 minutes
Yield:2 burgers 1x
8oz block organic soy tempeh
½ cup BBQ sauce
2 hamburger buns
Cut the tempeh block in half. Fill a large pot with water, place a colander on top, place cut tempeh into the colander, cover with lid, place pot on stove top and turn on heat to high to steam for 10 minutes.
Then remove the tempeh, dump out the water and proceed with next cooking steps.
Add the BBQ sauce to a pot or pan, bring to a simmer, add the tempeh and cook the tempeh in the sauce for 5 to 10 minutes, turning it over half way through and moving it around in the sauce to keep it evenly coated.
Coat the tempeh evenly in the BBQ sauce and place on grill or preferably let marinate for some time to soak up the flavor prior to placing on the grill to cook just until browned on both sides.
