27 Jan Sesame Roasted Tempeh – Sharon Palmer, The Plant Powered Dietitian
Calling all plant-based aficionados! If you haven’t tried tempeh, you are really missing out! This plant-based, vegan superstar is a traditional food from Indonesia, made from fermented soy and grain, and it’s packed with nutrients, including protein and fiber. Tempeh is just so versatile, you can use it in place of meat in just about anything: stir-fries, casseroles, sandwiches, stews, pasta dishes. It’s also really good on its own if you marinate it and roast it, as I’ve done in my classic recipe for Sesame Roasted Tempeh. This simple solution is perfect for making up your own batch of roasted tempeh each week so you can sprinkle it into salads and wraps, and munch on it as a high-protein snack.
This easy recipe for marinated, roasted tempeh is a classic plant-based dish you can use as a protein entree, or as an addition to salads, wraps, or grain bowls.
- Place cubed tempeh in a medium dish.
- Add soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha sauce, agave syrup, garlic, and ginger. Stir well, cover, and marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
