Food & Drink Recipes > Recipe of the Day > Tempeh Sandwiches Recipe
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) package tempeh, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons liquid amino acid supplement
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 2 pita breads, cut in half
  • soy mayonnaise
  • 4 thin slices Swiss cheese
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until they start to brown. Pour in half of the liquid aminos and cook for 1 minute. Flip the tempeh slices and cook until toasted, 3 to 4 more minutes. Pour in the remaining liquid aminos and cook for 1 minute. Remove the tempeh, and set it aside.
  2. In the same skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Cook the onion, green pepper, and jalapeno until the vegetables have softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Spread each pita half with 1 teaspoon soy mayonnaise. Stuff each pita with several slices of tempeh, peppers and onions, and a piece of Swiss cheese. Toast the sandwiches in a toaster oven for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
