Vegan tempeh salami
This simple recipe from Ben at Tempeh Meades is a great place to start if you’re new to tempeh, but even if you’re already a convert it’s a good way to get more of the good stuff into your diet. Ben likes his in sandwiches, but we’re rather partial to a side of marinated tempeh with our cooked breakfast.
Marinated tempeh ‘salami’
200g Tempeh Meades tempeh
3 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp maple syrup
Slice the block of tempeh into thin strips, still thick enough to hold their shape. Combine the soy sauce, paprika and maple syrup in a bowl, then marinade your tempeh slices for at least 5 minutes.
Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan. Once nice and hot, though not smoking, add the tempeh strips to the pan. Fry for 2 minutes on each, tipping in the remaining marinade towards the end and letting the liquid simmer.
Serve on your favourite sandwich, or as part of a hearty breakfast.
