Introduction

I adapted this recipe from Susan V of the Fat Free Vegan Blog. Her recipe is for a cajun flavor and as a result has cajun seasoning and agave nectar. I made this with maple syrup and omitted the cajun seasonings for more of a breakfast "meat". Keep in mind this will not be crispy like bacon would be, it is more like a small breakfast sausage.

Ingredients

    1 package tempeh

    Marinade:
    2T soy sauce
    1T maple syrup
    1/2t cider vinegar
    1/2t liquid smoke
    2T water
    1t minced garlic

Directions

Steam the tempeh for 15 minutes before using.

Prepare marinade in a ziploc bag big enough to fit the entire block of tempeh.

Cut tempeh into 1/4" strips (my block of tempeh made 20 pieces) and place in marinade. Shake the bag around to coat and let marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Fry in a nonstick skillet (you can use spray oil if you are afraid of sticking) over medium heat until browned, then turn and brown on the other side.

Makes 20 pieces.
