This easy and versatile, this Tempeh Marinade uses simple ingredients and can be made days ahead of time. Try it when you’re craving irresistible and flavorful tempeh in sandwiches, tacos, salads, or grain bowls.
Cut 8oz of tempeh into triangles or squares and steam in a steamer basket for 10 minutes.*
Put tempeh in a glass/pyrex bowl and pour marinade over tempeh.
Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
You can flip the tempeh triangles again halfway during marinating to ensure the flavor seeps into both sides but this is not necessary.
Nutritional info is for marinade only.
I like to cut the tempeh through the middle first so you have 2 of the same size blocks as you started with but they’re thinner. This works for when you’re serving tempeh that is not incorporated into another dish, as with my Teriyaki Tempeh. If you're making a dish in which the tempeh will be incorporated/stirred like a tempeh stir fry, don’t cut tempeh through the middle to make it thinner.
