Lightlife Smoky Tempeh Strips Review
Lightlife Smoky Tempeh strips. Love-em!
“Another Lightlife review?”, you ask. Yeah! They make good stuff! Last night, Kristie and I were feeling like a “BLT”, in this case…a “TLTA” (tempeh, lettuce, tomato, and avocado). Not only was I craving something smoky, but I was in the mood for a sammich with some avocado, hence the idea for the TLTA. We just happened to have this version of Lightlife in the fridge and I almost came to tears when I found it under some other cold-cut style slices!
These smoky bastards are bold in flavor, and covered in some sticky sweet sauce to tingle the taste-buds. Made with cultured organic soybeans, brown rice, and some dang good spices, the strips go well on a sandwich or can be eaten alone. I have previous wrapped these in a tortilla with some lettuce and homemade ranch dressing and that was freaking amazing as well. But tonight, the ole Dave’s Killer Bread was gonna get some love.
What I love about this product, besides the taste, is the ease of preparation.
- Open up the package
- (and this is my preferred method) Break them mutthas in half, ’cause they gonna break when you flip em anyway.
- Get you a skillet, or a flat pan like I use, and spray a lil oil on there.
- Put the heat to it
- Place tempeh on pan
- Cook for ~ 3-4 minutes, flip and repeat.
- Make your sammich
I simply constructed this using my favorite bread, Dave’s Killer bread, Good Seed, toasted! Smear on a generous portion of Just Mayo®, or your favorite vegan mayo. Slice up a mater, and tear off some iceberg (even though I prefer romaine…but people have been gettin sick all over eating that mess, so I left that stuff alone this time).
Look how good this thing looks all put together!
Added me some Kettle Brand Jalapeno chips and a Bubbies pickle!
As far as Nutritional Facts are concerned…check it out:
4 Slices per serving…I was able to get about 4.5 after splitting it with the wife. I think they threw 1 extra slice up in my package Wooo Hooo!
