"Delicious tempeh in an easy recipe combining ginger, garlic, soy sauce and maple syrup. Serve over rice with green veggies. This is an old stand by recipe which I learned from my uncle who used to marinate chicken wings with these ingredients!"
Process soy sauce, water, maple syrup, garlic, and ginger together in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Pour oil into a baking dish. Place tempeh on top of oil and pour soy sauce mixture over tempeh. Cover dish with aluminum foil and marinate for 1 to 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake tempeh, covered with aluminum foil, in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil, increase heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and continue baking until tempeh is slightly brown, about 15 minutes more.
