But this day only comes once every four years, so really it should be a date of celebration, relaxation, and trying new things!
So I challenge YOU to try some tempeh today!! It is so versatile because it will absorb any flavor you want!
This recipe is asian inspired, with a touch of sweetness and spice! Go take a leap and try it today!
You first need to break open your block of tempeh... it will look like this:
|See? The slices are THICK|
|Cut so the slices are not super thick anymore|
- 2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, more or less depending on taste preference
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Your shallow dish should now resemble this...
Now put everyone in the pool!
|Marinate for 10 - 15 minutes on one side|
|Then flip over and marinate for another 10 - 15 minutes|
Time for the cooking it! In a skillet on medium heat, put 1.5 teaspoons of olive oil and wait until everything is hot. Then add the marinated tempeh and cook on each side for about 3 - 4 minutes or until its nice and golden like so...
The best thing about cooking with tempeh? Unlike meat, chicken, or fish, you can save the extra marinade as a dipping sauce!
