BBQ Tempeh

Fresh from the oven...

Triggers my mind to have'em a bite!!

The fragrance was just oh-so-nice!!
The texture was just oh-so-delicious!!

And the colour was just oh-so-tanned and oh-so-sexy!!

From this moment, i know biting a thickly sliced tempeh was just oh-so-blessed!!

They are just the greatest gift from GOD * Bear with me!! i am getting exaggerating*

But, i couldn't help myself to stop over-describing...

Just because they were simply yummy!!

BBQ Tempeh
Serve 5-6 (a possibilty to be reduced to 3-4 serving, because they are really yum, hehehe...)
2 blocks Tempeh, thickly sliced (250 gr each block)
Lots of Garlic, peeled ( i used 1 1/2 whole Garlic)
Lots of Shallot, peeled (i used 4 Shallots)
Kecap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce) - i used 2 tbsp *approx*
Salt and Pepper

  • Using Mortal and Pestle, coarsely pound the garlic and shallots
  • In a bowl (or ziplock bag), combine pounded garlic, shallots, kecap manis, salt & pepper. Mix well
  • Add in tempeh, toss
  • Marinade for at least 4 hours (best leave overnight) in the fridge - i left mine overnight
  • Next day, line the baking tray with aluminium foil, lightly grease with olive oil
  • Arrange tempeh on the baking tray, oven-bake for 20 minutes *approx* (10 minutes each side) in a 220 degree heated oven
  • Serve warm
