Spicy Baked Tempeh Strips


  • 1 package Lightlife tempeh, 8-oz. (Garden Veggie is my favorite)
  • 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • black pepper, to taste


Preparation Instructions

Serves 2-3

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Slice the tempeh into strips, about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. In a shallow dish, fully cover the strips in coconut milk.
  3. In another shallow dish, combine nutritional yeast, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Dip the strips in this mixture next, making sure to fully cover all surfaces.
  4. Using a non-stick baking mat, bake strips 15 minutes. Flip each strip and bake an additional 5-10 minutes until crispy.
