Tempeh "Bacon"



Mix marinade ingredients in a plastic lidded container. Slice a block of tempeh into 5mm slices. Put in the container with the marinade, making sure each slice is coated. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Put the slices on a baking sheet and bake at 180 degrees Celisus for 15 minutes, or fry in a very small amount of oil.
