  • 4 ounces tempeh, cut into small slices
  • 1 recipe Hot For Food "bacon" marinade

  4. Add any garnishes, if desired.  Serve hot and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

*If you aren't gluten-free, sometimes you can find fresh yakisoba noodles in supermarkets.  If not, look in the Asian section of your supermarket and look for "chuka soba" noodles.  They aren't buckwheat noodles, despite the word soba being used.  If you can't find those, you can always substitute angel hair pasta in a pinch!
