Tempeh is a fantastic fermented soy product which makes an amazing meat substitute that works in any recipe that calls for a ground meat.
All of my ingredients are organic but if you can’t manage that, conventional ingredients will work fine too.
8 ounces of tempeh cubed (try to find Non GMO organic if you can)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (my oil of choice for cooking) but you can use olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 red pepper diced small
2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped or a 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chile powder (more if you wish)
1 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetarian Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce (or more if you want them with a kick of heat)
4 whole grain buns, toasted
You should steam the tempeh for about 10 minutes. Crumble or mash in a bowl.
In a pot heat oil and cook onion until translucent. Toss in the tempeh cubes and diced bell pepper and stir cooking for about 5 minutes. Add fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes and chili powder, Worchestershire, salt and pepper and hot sauce. Simmer for about 10 minutes stirring.
Serve on toasted buns.
Delicious. Easy to make.
