  • Meanwhile, clean the pineapple by removing the peel. Cut into half-inch-thick slices and remove core;
  • In a small bowl, prepare the vinaigrette and set aside;
  • Once maceration is complete, assemble tempeh skewers, alternating tempeh and bell pepper pieces;
  • Light the BBQ over medium-high heat and cook the skewers. and pineapple slices for 5 minutes on each side;
