I like soaking firm tofu slices in molasses, liquid smoke, salt, pepper and paprika and baking at 400F for about 20. 

When it’s done it’s a tender sweet savory morsel that tastes good as a ‘main’ in a dish or with some savory rice and beans. 

One of my favorite dishes to make is vegan shephards pie, which we actually just had last night! I like to use the ‘gardein meatless crumbles’ as a base with frozen veggies ketchup and franks red hot. 

Then I throw that in the oven with garlic mashed potatoes on top, a little shredded nut cheese and voila! Dinner is served and it only takes about 60 minutes including baking.

We like to also fry it with Franks hot sauce then put more Franks on it and eat it with some kind of dip. You can do almost anything with it, probably adding a bit of smoke flavour and/or bbq sauce would be amazing too.

I eat it 2x week.  Slice it, coat it in BBQ sauce, and bake it.  Fry it with onions, peppers, and fajita seasoning for tacos.  Throw it into asian stirfry and curries.

Slice it thin and bake it for reuben sandwiches. I also put it on caesar salads for extra protein.  

I can easily find tempeh in NYC, and it usually doesn’t cost more than $4.

Try looking for it at other stores- Whole Foods tends to be pricey for most things. I can get tempeh at our local grocery store. 

I am lazy and buy tempeh that is already seasoned. I like to eat the Tofurkey Maple Bacon flavor on a sandwich with lettuce, tomato and avocado. It’s yummy!
