Spiced Tempeh Sandwiches

Recipe by TishT

Tempeh is a great cholesterol-free sub for beef. The spicy marinade makes this a delicious sandwich without the need for mayo!

Top Review by PalatablePastime

These sandwiches were easy to make and quite tasty! The tempeh had a firm texture similar to veggie burgers with a slight nutty taste. The sauce for these gave an Oriental taste that was not very spicy but was definitely flavorful. I used 8 oz. tempeh in this recipe, and it made 4 sandwiches. I can't see one person comfortably eating 8 ounces of tempeh on one sandwich. I might like to try this with some cooked ramen sometime (instead of on a sandwich) for a quick and easy lunch. Thanks for a nice recipe!
