BBQ Tempeh Sandwiches by OhMyVeggie

When July 4th rolled by, and everyone was out bbq’ing and stuff, I can’t lie… I did get a tad jealous.  Only a tad.  I sometimes miss the carcinogens from cooking with coal.  And, I admit that I relent to them.  I do recommend using a grill pan if you are going to try to do this (and ESPECIALLY if you share a grill with those who used their canines for what seems their evolutionary ends).

But, even if just pan sautéing (I like to bake tempeh, I admit), this is fast, delicious, and easy as… as a tempeh sandwich!

Also, check out Nava Atlas’s Quick Vegan Barbecue Sauce recipe for a great accompaniment and alternative to store-bought sauces (and one that compliments veggie-based food)!
