Smoky grilled tempeh

We’ve been playing around with meat substitutes lately, possibly because we’ve been cooking for my parents and they’re meat-eaters. Tempeh is a soy product like tofu but much denser and has a burger-patty-like texture. It can be grilled, fried, or cooked in the oven.

The picture above is of smoky grilled tempeh (recipe here). The recipe is from Veganomicon and includes instructions for grilling, panfrying, and broiling tempeh. We panfried ours, and it turned out quite well. To complete our “steak and potatoes” dinner, we also served tomato, saffron, and almond sauce over roasted parsnips, butternut squash, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. It was quite a feast.
