Barbecue Tempeh Sandwich

This past weekend, I was reading the latest issue of Vegetarian Times and came across a recipe for a barbecue seitan sandwich.

It looked delicious, but I really don't like seitan all that much. So, I started searching online for a tempeh barbecue recipe and came across one at naturalhealthmag.com.

I followed the recipe as written, except I decided to use packaged broccoli slaw in lieu of grating my own cabbage and carrots and mincing my own red onion. (I know, that's so Sandra Lee!)

I thought the end result was ok. This is not a dish that I can see myself making again, and I really can't explain why that's the case. Maybe I'm just not a barbecue type of person.

The baked red potatoes, on the other hand, were awesome. I just took some red potatoes, tossed them in some olive oil, dried thyme, dried basil, salt and pepper, and baked them uncovered in a 450 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes. A very simple side dish.

I'm no vegetarian (and I have no plans of becoming one) but this tempeh barbecue is simply yummy! I cook it for my friends and they loved it, too! So, who says you can't eat healthy and delicious at the same time? This tempeh barbecue is now fixed in our weekly cook-out menu, lol!
