Easy Maple Tempeh Bacon

From the Roaming Fork Cookbook by Amanda Hart

--------------------

Tempeh haters be prepared to change!  The salty, sweet smokiness is irresistible, and pairs perfectly with creamy avocado.  Try it in a wrap like the one on the opposite page, in a BLT, crumbled on a salad or in my Avocado Tempeh Bacon Sliders.

--------------------

Ingredients

Makes about 10-12 strips

1 package (about 8oz) plain tempeh (strips or a block)

3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for cooking

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon pepper, optional

Directions:

If using a block of tempeh, cut lengthwise into long, thin strips.

In a glass casserole dish, baking pan or storage container, mix together all ingredients besides the tempeh.  Once mixed, arrange the tempeh strips in a single layer, being sure to coat all sides with the marinade.

Allow to marinate at least an hour.  I usually prepare it the night before so it can marinate overnight.

To cook, simply add a small amount of oil to skillet over medium heat and fry the tempeh strips until golden and crispy, about 3-5 minutes each side.
