Simple Sautéed Tempeh Strips
These tasty strips are good with pancakes, on a sandwich or wrapped in a corn tortilla, or served over a cooked grain, such as brown rice, millet, quinoa, or kasha. Prepare with wheat-free soy sauce if you want them to be gluten-free.
Yield: 24 strips; 4 servings
- 8 ounces tempeh
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons water
Cut the tempeh into strips 1/8 inch thick. Combine the soy sauce and water. Heat enough oil in a skillet to just coat the bottom. When hot, add the tempeh strips. Brown lightly on both sides.
Sprinkle the soy sauce mixture over the browned tempeh. Cover and cook 1 to 2 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove the lid and cook to evaporate any remaining moisture.
