This is the perfect sandwich if you love the flavor of smoked food but want to skip eating animal protein or just want to change it up with a plant-based meal. To make the smoked tempeh, you’ll need a disposable foil pan plus some small wood chips.
A fermented food, tempeh is made from partly cooked soybeans inoculated with spores of a friendly mold in a process resembling cheese-making. The mold creates threads that bind the beans into a flat cake. It has a yeasty flavor and firm texture.
