Garlicky Tempeh Sandwiches
Tempeh and tri-colored peppers are bathed in a savory marinade to make the filling for this delicious grilled sandwich from VegNews columnist Beverly Lynn Bennett. If slightly warmer temperatures are turning your thoughts to picnics, try these stellar sandwiches for your next meal enjoyed al fresco. Tempeh's texture makes the perfect stand-in for traditional Italian sausage in these fantastic hand-holds. Just be sure to bring a cloth napkin for everyone—these can be a little messy!

What You Do:
1. For the Garlic & Herb Marinade, in a small bowl, place all ingredients and whisk well to combine. Add tamari, balsamic vinegar, ketchup, rosemary, thyme, fennel, and pepper flakes. Whisk again to combine and set aside.

2. Cut tempeh into 4-ounce portions, yielding 6 pieces. Place tempeh pieces in a large casserole dish. Place peppers and onion in a separate casserole dish. Drizzle 1/3 of the marinade over tempeh and 1/3 of marinade over vegetables. Place both casserole dishes in refrigerator and leave to marinate for several hours.

3. On a heated grill, place tempeh and vegetables and brush with remaining marinade. Grill tempeh until well-browned, about 5 to 7 minutes per side, and vegetables until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear. Using metal tongs or a spatula, transfer cooked tempeh and vegetables to a large platter for service. If desired, grill buns for 1 to 2 minutes. Assemble each sandwich with one portion of tempeh, a few slices of grilled peppers and onions, and desired condiments.

Chef's Tip: Use the Garlic & Herb Marinade to marinate vegetables, tofu, or faux meat; as a basting sauce during grilling; or as a base for other sauces and dressings. It will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
