Tempeh ‘Bacun’

Posted in : Recipes on by : Dani Pipkins Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

When I first saw tempeh I really wasn’t sure what to think about it. I read more about it and decided to try it. It was great, because it really can take on the flavors of most anything. Pretty versatile, like many other plant based foods.

So, what is tempeh? It is a very low fat and high protein food. It’s a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia.  It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. This is a great food to incorporate into your plant based diet because it is so high in protein.

This ‘bacun’ works really great incorporated into the Crispy Tempeh ‘BLT’ OR crumbled up and used with the ‘Loaded Baked Potatoes‘.

Instructions
  1. Slice your tempeh into 1/4 inch slices. Too thin and they will fall apart. If they fall apart, keep them anyway. Slice up the entire package. They will be short pieces.
  2. You MUST steam this for 15 minutes now. It gets rid of the bitterness.
  3. Put them into a dish and pour your Maple Bacun Marinade over them. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. When marinated, heat up a large non stick skilled or use an electric griddle. (that's what i use) Heat to 350 degrees. Lay all of the pieces onto the griddle and let them fry. No oil needed.
  5. Also, Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  6. You want them to brown up. Then, flip over and brown up the other side. If you want, drizzle more marinade over each piece and flip for a second time.
  7. In a baking sheet lined with parchment or non stick foil (your choice), lay each tempeh piece down.
  8. Bake each side for 10 minutes and remove.
  9. Turn the broiler onto high. Place your pan back in the oven under the broiler for about 10 to 20 seconds. Then flip and broil the other side for about 10 to 20 seconds.
  10. They may look burnt. It's ok. We want them crispy and once you put them into your BLT you will be glad they are this way.
  11. Remove and set aside in order to make your Crispy Tempeh 'BLT' OR crumble this up and use on top of loaded baked potatoes!
