The "Pulled Tempeh" Sandwich: An Idea Perhaps Better Left Untested

BBQ "pulled tempeh" sandwich: so meaty, they fool even the most dedicated carnivore. We used the barbecue marinade from the Angelica Home Kitchen book to make a sort of sloppy joe. The results were pretty decent, if a bit ugly. "Cutlets" of tempeh baked in this marinade are far better.

  • 2 cu. sun-dried tomatoes, rehydrated in hot water for several minutes
  • 1 dried hot red chili, rehydrated together with the tomatoes above
  • 1/2 cu. cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cu. tamari
  • 1/3 cu. maple syrup
  • 1/2 cu. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
Purée all of the ingredients and pour the resulting mixture over strips of tempeh before baking in an oven for about 40 minutes. You've reached the right consistency when the marinade has cooked down to a gooey mess.
