Tempeh Bacon

Tempeh Bacon

1 pkg of tempeh
2 tablespoons of soy sauce/tamari
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 tablespoon of mirin (optional)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 tsp cumin
2 or 3 cloves of crushed garlic
a few shakes of black pepper

Slice the tempeh into slices as thin as you can make them (but not so they fall apart). Marinade in the liquid/spice mixture for a few hours.

fry them up in a frying pan (i used sunflower oil but any oil will do)
brown on both sides.

I use this in sandwiches in place of bacon.

I've tried Tempeh, Lettuce and Tomato, Tempeh and Avacado and red onion, Tempeh and cheese and tomato (grilled)
