Believe it or not, the sweet, spicy, and tangy flavors of barbecue sauce go great with tempeh .
Confession: I love barbecue. The moist, tenderness of slowly roasted barbecue chicken or pulled pork really makes me swoon. However, it is not really possible for me to slow roast an entire chicken on my front porch. I neither have the time nor the resources to start a BBQ pit outside.
To satisfy my BBQ needs, (I was inspired by Noelle’s BBQ Tempeh Quesadillas) I created something a little different last night.
While I am still a “newbie” when it comes to cooking and preparing tempeh, the flavor and texture is really starting to grow on me. It is firm and chewy, but with a slightly nutty flavor that is oddly addicting.
Like most foods, it takes a few tries to acquire a taste, but once you do, I think you will like it.
