Tempeh is a soybean cake with a slightly nutty flavor that pairs well with the sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. You can prepare the sauce and slice the vegetables and tempeh ahead of time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Cut tempeh in half lengthwise; cut slices in half. Brush tempeh slices, bell peppers, and onion with the ketchup mixture. Place on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until the tempeh is thoroughly heated. Remove the tempeh, bell peppers, and onion from grill. Cut bell peppers into 1/2-inch-wide strips; separate onions into rings.

Step 4

Place 1 tempeh slice on bottom half of each bun. Top each tempeh slice with one-fourth of bell peppers, one-fourth of onion, and top half of bun.

I loved these! The sauce is quite good. These also work well in hot dog buns.

It was ok but nothing great. If I decide to make again, will not use so many peppers.

Really good! If you're a tempeh fan, definitely try it. I had to use a grill pan on the stove and I think it would be far superior on a real outdoor grill. The homemade barbecue sauce was definitely delicious.

It was pretty simple to make and great tasting. I've never really liked barbecued, but this is a keeper.
