- 1 8-ounce package of tempeh
- water for simmering
- 2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
Once cooled, slice tempeh in half width-wise (like a bagel), then in thirds to create six patties, or slice a bit larger if you'll be using your tempeh for sandwiches.
Whisk together olive oil and soy sauce and pour over tempeh in a bowl. Allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes, minimum.
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a baking pan with foil and transfer marinated tempeh to pan. Bake in oven for ten minutes, then remove the pan from the oven.
Using tongs, brush tempeh with barbecue sauce on both sides, then return to pan. Return tempeh to the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until sauce has baked on.
