This was so good! It reminded me and my husband of chicken nuggets! this would be a great appetiser for people who have not tried tempeh before. I marinated the tempeh first though in some tamari garlic water and olive oil. I strongly suggest marinating since tempeh can be bland. I also didnt have green onion so i minced about 2 TBS yellow onion instead. Also the instructions talk about garlic but no garlic is mentioned in the ingredients so i just guessed. AND i admit i didnt use as much oil! so i dont know if it was because of that or if the batter was too thin but i found that drizzling a little extra batter over each peice is DELICIOUS! It turned out very good and i would definately make it again! We ate ours with ketchup! YUM! Read More

My two year old ate most of these before I could finish making dinner. I too marinated them in about 1T of liquid aminos and the garlic called for in the recipe. I used 1/4c less water than what was called for and it coated well. Anything my tot will eat we will make again and again. Read More

I left a few ingredients out because I didn't have them on hand but this was dangerously delicious. I seriously wish I had sweet and sour sauce on hand. Sooo yummy. Read More

I am by no means an excellent cook but this one was my worst attempt according to my husband. We ended up sending out for pizza. Read More
