Smokin' Vegan Tempeh
Health-foodies, vegetarians and vegans, rejoice! This protein-packed, healthy, cruelty-free bacon will rock your world. Adapted from the Vegan Table
Serves: About 12 slices
  • 1 tbsp dairy-free butter or refined coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 packet of fresh unpasteurised organic tempeh (225g)
  1. Thinly slice 1 packet of tempeh. The thinner it is, the crunchier the tempeh bacon would be.
  2. Combine the soy marinade and maple syrup in a shallow dish.
  3. Soak tempeh in marinade for about 15 minutes.
  4. Heat up oil on a saute pan on high heat.
  5. Fry tempeh in batches until crispy and brown, turning halfway, about 1 minute each side.
  6. Cool on paper towel.
  7. Serve.
Tips: You can also make Smokin' Tempeh Bacon by simply adding 3 tablespoons maple syrup to the marinade mixture. Salty, sweet and sticky vegan bacon goodness, anyone?
