Ingredients

  • 1½ cups tomato purée
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 medium canned chipotle pepper, seeds removed
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbs. molasses
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. tamari
  • 2 blocks tempeh
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • Ciabatta bread or whole-grain hamburger buns, optional

Preparation

  1. In medium saucepan, combine tomato purée, tomato paste, onion, garlic, chipotle chili, and rosemary. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, uncovered. Transfer to blender, add molasses, honey, and tamari, and purée until smooth.
  2. Cut each tempeh block in half crosswise, then split lengthwise to make thinner slabs. Arrange in baking dish and brush with oil. Pour barbecue sauce over tempeh, and bake 10 minutes, until sauce is bubbly and tempeh is cooked through.
