Tempeh Bacon

tempehbacon317.jpg

This bacon is a wonderful alternative to traditional pork and beef versions.  Don't expect it to taste like pork or beef but it does have the familiar smoky taste. 

The case against pork bacon:

*high saturated fat

*high cholesterol

*increased chance of colorectal cancer from pork consumption

*Most of all, the inhumane treatment of pigs in factory farms

"The only difference between pigs and dogs, is the way we treat them."

Tempeh Bacon

by Brown Vegan

Cook Time: 35

Keywords: bake steam breakfast vegan

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 1 8 oz package tempeh
  • 1/2 cup natural maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke (found in the same aisle as BBQ sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning (optional)

Instructions

Cut tempeh into thin slices and steam or boil for about 10 minutes in ½ cup of water.

Transfer to a bowl and add all remaining ingredients. Allow tempeh to marinate for a few hours (I did it overnight).

Preheat oven at 380º and spread tempeh out on foil. Add leftover marinate on top and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, flip over, and allow to bake for 10 additional minutes.
