BBQ Tempeh

BBQ Tempeh PinWe love this BBQ Tempeh recipe. The meaty texture of the tempeh and the sweetness of the BBQ sauce make this a deliciously chewy dish.

Tempeh is a traditional Asian food made from fermented soy. Unlike tofu, which is also made from soy beans, tempeh is less processed and made from the whole intact soy beans. It has been shown to contain the most “potent health protective properties, due to both higher soy concentration and the fermentation process.”

The tempeh in this recipe is marinated in BBQ sauce, but it tastes even better with a little extra sauce for dipping. Enjoy with a Vegan Baked Potato or Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and a Side Salad or some Broccoli Salad.

Baked Tempeh and Broccoli

Baked Tempeh and Broccoli PinThis Baked Tempeh and Broccoli recipe is a colorful, healthy plant-based meal with ample leftovers for busy weekday meals. It’s somewhat like a stir fry in it’s look and texture, but you bake it in the oven instead of in a wok or on the stove.

Tempeh is a minimally processed soy product that’s also high in protein. Each serving for this recipe has 11 grams of fiber, 15 grams of protein, 155% RDV of Vitamin A, 126% Vitamin C and 19% Iron. That’s a lot of nutrition for 299 calories making this a great weight loss recipe.

We put the Baked Tempeh and Broccoli over brown rice, but you could eat it plain without rice, with white steamed rice, or put it over spaghetti squash to cut down on the carbs and calories.
