1 cup(s)

Table salt

  1. Steam tempeh until softened, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and mash well with a fork; set aside.
  2. Coat a nonstick skillet with olive oil-flavoured cooking spray and set over medium-low heat; add onion and sauté until very tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and tempeh, and simmer 2 to 3 minutes; season to taste with salt and pepper. Top bottom of each bun with about 1/2 cup of tempeh mixture. Cover with tops and serve.
