The first time I tried tempeh was several years ago, when I used it in a recipe intended to turn tempeh into vegetarian sausage. That recipe went into the recycling bin! I wanted to give it another try, so I made this Smothered Tempeh Sandwich, using Laughing Cow Light cheese and whole wheat English muffins.
I liked the combination of onions, mushrooms, and red wine, but the tempeh itself wasn’t that impressive. If you are looking to give tempeh a try, I’d recommend the recipe. Otherwise, I would say just cook the other ingredients to use a topping for your favorite burger – either vegetarian or not.
