Barbecue-Flavored Roasted Tempeh and Vegetables
A tasty and nutritious main dish
Two 8-ounce packages tempeh, any variety
1 green bell pepper, cut into wide strips
1 red bell pepper, cut into wide strips
1 cup baby carrots
1 medium zucchini, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced, rings separated
1 cup small whole baby bella or crimini mushrooms, optional
1 cup natural barbecue sauce, or as needed to coat ingredients
Preheat the oven to 425 F (220 C).
Cut the tempeh in half lengthwise, then crosswise into short, 1/2-inch-thick strips.
Stir all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl, then transfer to a foil-lined and lightly oiled roasting pan.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the vegetables are just tender, stirring after the first 10 minutes, then serve.
