Barbecue-Flavored Roasted Tempeh and Vegetables
If you’re looking for an undemanding tempeh dish that makes a large quantity, here’s a good choice.
Serve the meal with baked or microwaved sweet potatoes. For a lighter accompaniment, roast some cauliflower florets, tossed in a little olive oil, at the same time as the tempeh. A light soup makes a good first course to this dish.
