There's a lot you can with tempeh!
I love to slice it kinda thin and marinate for a while in -
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon (or more to taste) liquid smoke
1 teaspoon Braggs amino acids (or soy sauce - I love Braggs though)
a touch of syrup-you decide
a dash of sage, a dash of thyme, black pepper
I lightly oil a pan and lay out the slices, let brown a bit, turn, and then pour on the liquid and let cook till absorbed and golden.
I love this as a Rueben- with Just Mayo-ketchup-pickle relish, sauerkraut, on rye toast. Grilled with some vegan cheese like Daiya block jalepano is my favorite sandwich ever!
I also like this recipe-
Some recipes say to steam tempeh for 5-10 minutes but I've only done that a couple times. Can't say I found a difference
It's really good crumbled in stir fry veggies and gives good texture in loaves and balls
