Vegan Bacon (Tempeh)

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package tempeh
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or Bragg's liquid aminos
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cumin

Instructions

  1. Slice the tempeh into thin slices and let the pieces sit in the marinade for 10-15 minutes (overnight if you can). 

  2. Sautee tempeh in a pan with a light layer of olive oil. Cook until desired crispiness. Toss in any remaining marinade you have left over and let simmer. 

  3. Remove tempeh slices from heat and place on a paper towel. Can dice if desired or serve as is. 

Recipe Notes

For the tempeh, I used Lightlife's brand which can be found at many health food stores. 

If you want to make a jar of the marinade so you don't have to remix every time, increase the measurements 1:1 to each serving you'd like to store away. Example: for 4 servings, do 4x as much of each ingredient.
