Perfect for adding to salads or entrees for extra protein!


1 package Tempeh (tempe) (8 ounces, cut in the size or shape appropriate to use)
2 tbsp Soy sauce, tamari (or shoyu)
1 1/2 tbsp Rice vinegar (or white, cider, balsamic, rice or red wine vinegar)
1 tsp minced Ginger root (or grated)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 tbsp Coconut oil


1. Combine the tamari, vinegar, garlic and ginger in container or dish and stir to combine. If using additional seasoning, add it here. Add the tempeh. Marinate at room temperature, turning occasionally, for 20 minutes to 1 hour or refrigerated for up to 2 days.

2. Fifteen minutes before you are ready to cook the tempeh, preheat the oven to 375°F.

3. Place the marinated tempeh pieces on a nonstick baking sheet or one that has been sprayed with cooking spray, allowing plenty of air space between chunks. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, then flip the pieces over and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and use as desired.


Bake an entire package (or two) to have around to add to meals throughout the week.
