How grateful I am to create days with you that buzz with joy!
You will love this mouth watering dish!
Tempeh has a firm nougat-like texture and nutty flavor. It is identified as a complete protein food containing all of the essential amino acids. Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans and has a high fiber content; it is also very digestible.
This orange tempeh dish goes well with Brussels sprouts and the grain of your choice.
Remember to prepare your food with a happy heart and a happy heart you both shall have!
Tempeh with Orange Glaze
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (3 large juicy oranges)
2 teaspoons soy sauce (or tamari)
2 tablespoons white wine (or mirin---sweet rice wine)
2 Teaspoons brown rice syrup (or maple syrup)
1 package of tempeh
3 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup parsley (or lemon balm), chopped
Cut your tempeh bar into four even pieces. Place in a small pan of water covering the tempeh, and bring to a boil.
Into a bowl put the orange juice, soy, white wine, and brown syrup and whisk.
Once the tempeh is boiled, take it out of the pan and pat dry then place it in a fry pan with the olive oil, frying both sides about four minutes each, or until brown on each side. Once the tempeh is browned, place the above ingredients from the bowl on top of the tempeh and simmer till a glaze is formed, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add parsley as a garnish.
You can place the tempeh on top of your favorite grain or just eat it as a side dish. Serve warm.
