Amazing Orange Glazed Tempeh

I can hardly contain my excitement!! I just had my favorite meal so far of 2012!  If you are reading this, you MUST make this tempeh right now... stop checking facebook and pinterest - get to Trader Joes or another health food store, buy some tempeh and stuff your face!

Orange Glazed Tempeh

  • 8-10oz block of tempeh
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced/pressed
  • 1 TBSP grated ginger (store ginger in the freezer - it keeps longer and makes it super easy to grate)
  • 2 tsp tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp white wine 
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • In a small bowl mix: OJ, garlic, ginger, tamari, maple syrup, wine, sugar & coriander 
  • Chop up tempeh - I sliced it in half width wise to make the slices thinner, then cut it into bit size pieces
  • Drizzle about 2 tbsp safflower oil in a pan - heat over med/high heat until it gets hot (but not yet smoking)
  • Throw in tempeh in a single layer 
  • Brown for about 3-4 minutes then flip 
  • Brown other side for another 3-4 minutes 
  • Pour sauce over tempeh
  • Let the sauce cook down for about 5-10 minutes over medium heat, it should get nice & thick
  • I served it over brown rice & broccoli - delish!! 
  • **Next time I may double the sauce so that it coats broccoli too** 
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!!
