Easy Baked Tempeh

This has to be one of the easiest recipes I have since the spices work with so many different ingredients. Potatoes also work well with this spice combination. Feel free to add or lessen the amount of spices to your personal taste! Enjoy!

The inclusion of tempeh adds a good measure of protein to this spicy enchilada casserole. You can replace the Cheddar cheese with Monterey Jack if you like. Serve with sour cream and salsa!

Barbeque Tempeh Sandwiches

I hate tofu but love tempeh and this sandwich is tangy and tasty. My boyfriend and I eat this all the time. It's great because it's vegan for him and I still like it (even though I'm not a vegetarian).
