  • 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.

Cook's Note:

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

I agree with Jordan. Did you ever figure out what needed to be included to give it a bit more pizzazz? Do you think swapping out the olive oil with sesame oil would help? Read More

I m in agreement with the other reviews. The flavor is lacking something and the texture is very dry. I did try increasing the garlic but it didn t really help. Maybe it needs something tart like citrus. I will not be making this again. Read More

Rather boring. A modified version of this recipe with something to add a bit more moisture to the mix would be appreciated. Will experiment and post with results. Read More
