For the BBQ Tempeh:

  • 8 ounces (225g) tempeh, sliced into thin strips

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free BBQ sauce

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Sautéed Green Beans:

  • 8 ounces (225g) green beans, trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1 medium-head cauliflower

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, tomato paste, olive oil, BBQ sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper to make the BBQ marinade.

  3. Place the tempeh strips in a shallow dish and pour the BBQ marinade over them, making sure they are well coated. Let them marinate for about 15 minutes.

  4. While the tempeh is marinating, prepare the green beans. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for a minute until fragrant. Add the green beans, season with salt and pepper, and sauté for about 5 minutes until tender-crisp. Set aside.

  5. To make the cauliflower rice, cut the cauliflower into florets and place them in a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice grains.

  6. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice and sauté for about 5 minutes until it becomes tender. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.

  7. While the cauliflower rice is cooking, heat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the pan with olive oil.

  8. Place the marinated tempeh strips on the grill pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until they are browned and slightly crispy.

  9. Transfer the tempeh to a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for an additional 10 minutes.

  10. Serve the BBQ tempeh with sautéed green beans and cauliflower rice on the side. Enjoy!
