Maple Balsamic Marinated Tempeh

Print

 

This maple balsamic marinade flavors the tempeh, then it is baked to crispy perfection. I added garlic sautéed spinach, but you could also pair it with roasted veggies or seasoned potatoes for a meat + potato kind of meal. A meal that is gluten free, dairy free, simple + vegan!

Further Food Commentary:

Here’s another Meatless Monday staple: Maple Marinated Tempeh. Yes, tempeh! While tempeh may be intimidating to cook with, this recipe knocks its easy-to-follow directions out of the park. The maple balsamic marinade brings a whole lot of flavor, and the crispy crunch brings a wonderful mouthfeel. While tempeh is higher in calories compared to tofu, it is less processed and provides more protein as well more fiber per serving. This recipe is great over a big green salad, roasted veggies, or even seasoned potatoes. Meatless Monday doesn’t have to mean “flavor-less” Monday, so get creative and get cooking!
