Tropical Tempeh Kebabs
- 2 packages soy tempeh
- 1 red bell pepper cut into bite-sized "squares"
- 16 button or cremini mushrooms cleaned
- 1 pineapple core removed and cut into chunks
- 1 jar Soyaki Teriyaki sauce available at Trader Joe’s
- 8 bamboo skewers soaked in water at least 15 minutes
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
Cut each tempeh block into about 16 cubes. Place in a bowl along with the bell pepper and mushrooms. Pour half the bottle of marinade over the tempeh pieces and vegetables. Allow to marinate at least an hour.
Divide the tempeh, pineapple and veggies among 8 skewers and stack them in any combo you please.
Heat oil on a grill or in a grill pan on the stove. Grill the skewers on each side, approximately 3-4 minutes. Baste with reserved marinade before turning the skewers.
