Try a new kind of barbecue! Low in PointsPlus and high in nutrition, the nutty flavour of tempeh (soybean cakes) is a wonderful alternative to meat.

Ingredients

Tempeh

10 oz, sliced into sixteen 1/4-inch-thick pieces

Uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, sliced

Sesame oil

1 tsp

Barbecue sauce

1 cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Steam tempeh for 20 minutes to prevent it from drying out when grilled. While tempeh is steaming, sauté onion in sesame oil over medium-high heat until very tender and golden, about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill. Brush tempeh slices with barbecue sauce and grill for 5 minutes on each side, brushing generously with sauce as it cooks.
  3. Top tempeh with onions and serve with additional sauce on the side. Yields about four slices tempeh plus 1/4 cup onions per serving.
