Tempeh recipe

I used to cook tempeh all the time when I was living in Mississippi. It's been a while, so I bought some recently and this is what I made:

I marinated the tempeh in
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon agave
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
few shakes of sesame oil
3 tablespoons water
2 cloves garlic
2 shakes of cayenne pepper
1 shake of cumin
2 shakes Tony Chachere's
1 drop hot sauce

I let it sit for half an hour. Then I poured off the marinade and fried the tempeh in vegetable oil. It basically tastes like barbecue.


Inspired by Randi, I was going to put some raw red cabbage in with the tempeh, but at the last second I decided to cook the cabbage, too, a little. I let them sit in the remaining marinade for a minute first.


Then I did something most people may find disgusting, but I found delicious, I added it to a bed of cottage cheese and raw spinach:
