Tempeh bacon is the greatest invention ever!
Posted Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 4:55 PM

Just tried my first tempeh bacon and I'm obsessed. Seriously, it's even more amazing than sliced bread. I'd tried and failed at cooking with tempeh before, but a tempeh BLT is not a sad imitator, it is fantastic!

Tempeh bacon that you can buy? Or did you make it yourself? I haven't tried tempeh bacon yet, but it it's that good...

I bought it, it's Turtle Island Foods smoky maple bacon marinated tempeh.

For seven (!) slices:
130 calories, 1g fat, 300g sodium, 5g fiber, 3g sugar, 12g protein, 8% calcium, 10% iron.

Good find, Ms Bear.

I think sandwiches are definitely the best setting for tempeh. I never found it to work well in things like stews or pasta.

I've bought Lightlife Fakin Bacon at Whole Foods a couple of times. It's a very good facsimile of bacon, which I always found too greasy anyway.

I like tempeh in Tikka Masala and other dishes that have a strong flavored sauce. It needs to be steamed first, though.
