Ingredients

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • 3 cloves garlic, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages tempeh, sliced diagonally

Directions

  1. Process soy sauce, water, maple syrup, garlic, and ginger together in a food processor or blender until smooth.

  2. 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.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. 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.

You can substitute shoyu or tamari sauce for the soy sauce, honey for the maple syrup, and grapeseed oil for the olive oil.
