Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I'm giving this five star for a very simple reason that someone could come up how to use tempeh in a sandwich. I come from Java Indonesia and I grew up eating that as a cheap substitute to meat. usually I would just slice them into 1-1.5cm thick marinate it with watered down mashed garlic and salt and fry it til golden brown. We eat it with warm rice or as a snack. Read More

Its unusual for recipes on this site to be as bad as this one. I followed the recipe exactly BTW ( I love Temeph). Recipe was too salty with the Amino's. I will finish it but never use this marinade again. Yuk! Read More

Thanks for a nice casual meal recipe. My kids who had been very resistant to even trying tempeh asked me to make these again! I made them just as described and they turned out good. I made these on a Saturday before we left for a busy day of errands and it satisfied the kids for hours. Read More

I didn't have either sesame oil or liquid amino acid supplement and I wasn't sure what valid substitutions would be so I used what I had on hand: canola oil and flax seed oil. I may not have gotten all the intended health benefits but it tasted great (and I got my omega-3's to boot)! Read More

Delicious. I used less jalapeno than recommended but used a spicy tempeh from the vegetarian section of the grocery store. Liquid amino is just a vegan type of soy sauce so substitute soy as necessary. And I was out of soy mayo so I used light Miracle Whip. Read More

These are awesome! I used tamari instead of amino acids. I also added some sliced portabella mushrooms to the green pepppers and onions. They are a big hit for both kids (omitted jalepeno) and adults! Read More
