Servings: 2 people


  • Half pack tempeh
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke


  • Preheat oven to 190oC
  • Slice the tempeh block into long pieces (thickness as desired).
  • Mix your soy sauce, onion powder, and liquid smoke together on a wide plate.
  • Add your slices of tempeh to the liquid to soak it up. After 5 minutes, flip them over and leave for another 5 minutes.
  • Line a tray with a baking sheet. Place your tempeh slices on and drizzle the olive oil over. Bake for 10 minutes (time may vary depending on how thick your slices are).
  • If you like your bacon crispy, you can leave it in the oven for an additional 3 minutes.
