Grilled Barbeque Tempeh

I printed out this recipe almost 7 months ago, and am just now getting to it. It only calls for 4 ingredients, so how hard could it be? It was good, but seemed like it was missing something. I would probably try it again, but would tweak it somehow. Toby liked it, but thought that the onions on top didn’t go well with it. I served this with potato pancakes and a green salad.

Grilled Barbeque Tempeh
(Weight Watchers website)


10 ounces tempeh, sliced into sizteen 1/2″-thick pieces
1 medium onion, sliced
1 tsp sesame oil
1 cup barbeque sauce


Steam tempeh for 20 minutes to prevent it from drying out when grilled. While tempeh is steaming, saute onion in sesame oil over medium-high heat until very tender and golden, about 10 minutes.

Preheat grill. Brush tempeh slices with barbeque sauce and grill for 5 minutes on each side, brushing generously with sauce as it cooks.

Top tempeh with onions and serve with additional sauce on the side. Yields about 4 slices tempeh plus 1/4 cup onions per serving.
