I love love love tempeh. But I only make it one way and it's kind of weird.
I use half a package and slice it into thick slices, kind of like wide french fries. I put it in the oven at 425 on a sprayed baking sheet and spray some EVOO and add some salt on them. Bake it for only about 10 mins. I dip them in Heinz Reduced Sugar Ketchup like french fries. I only use 1 tbsp. You can easily use BBQ sauce or any other IP-approved dipping sauce. Is this weird? I really enjoy it.
