Lightlife Review: Vegan Smoky Tempeh Strips
In my last post, I mentioned that Lightlife sent me some free samples of their products to give a try and review here on my blog. The first thing I dug into was their vegan Smoky Tempeh Strips, or Fakin' Bacon. I have to tell you, I was a bit wary of this product because I think bacon is disgusting. I know a lot of omnis have a bit of a bacon obsession but I've always thought that everything about it is vile - the smell, the taste, ewww!
That being said, I really liked Lightlife's Smoky Tempeh Strips! It didn't remind me of bacon (which is a really good thing) and it had a nice smoky flavor without being overpowering. I had mine in a sandwich:
It's pretty much a package of marinated tempeh, which is perfect for quick dinners or lunches, especially in the summer. I'd definitely buy some of these strips and do some sammy experiments with it. The husband liked them too, and he shares my bacon opinions :)
Have you tried this stuff yet?
