I love tempeh as much as the next person… wait… do you love it? Do you even know what it is? You should!
I wrote about tempeh way back when I had no readers here, so allow me to refresh your memory or make the initial introduction, excerpted from this post:
“Tempeh is fermented soy beans. The way it works is with the Rhizopus mold which binds the soybeans into a compact white cake. Now stop your cringeing and read on as this is a super delicious and healthful food… No need to get your soy-fearing-knickers in a bunch over my calling a soy-based food healthful… The main problem with soy is not really that is has phytoestrogens, or that it has enzyme inhibitors, the problem with soy is that most conventionally grown soy crops are genetically modified…. Organic Tempeh is a probiotic food, which means it helps the body to produce the healthful bacteria, while at the same time has antibiotic properties which help fight down the nasty guys. Tempeh is a complete protein and has soy isoflavones that strengthen bones, help to ease menopause symptoms, reduce risk of coronary hearth disease and some cancers. Tempeh maintains all the fiber of the beans and gains some digestive benefits from the enzymes created during the fermentation process”.
Now, I use tempeh in one of my cooking classes and in my recent overzealous attempt to organize my life a little, I ordered a massive supply of my dry goods that I use in my cooking classes. Many benefits came from this leap into organization mode and also some not so good. For one, I am missing half my files from my computer either because I filed them away somewhere that made sense at the time or put them in the trash and deleted them. The other thing that happened is that I ordered a case of tempeh. I am thinking I must have thought a case included six packets rather than the full 24 that I received. I sold a bunch at wholesale to the lucky ducks that were in my cooking classes, but I still have a heap of a lot to use up. This is where you come in!

Orange Maple Tempeh
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (3-4 large juicy oranges)
1 Tbs ginger root, grated
1 clove of garlic, crushed
2 Tbs Tamari (or Soya Sauce)
1 Tbs maple syrup
1 tsp coriander, ground
1 tsp cumin, ground
1 tsp turmeric|
2 Tbs olive oil
- Put the orange juice and tamari in a small bowl.
- Mix in the grated ginger, maple syrup, ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, and garlic. Mix together and set aside.
- Cut the tempeh into, bite-sized pieces.
- Put the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
- When the oil is hot but not smoking, add the tempeh and fry for 5 minutes, or until golden underneath.
- Turn tempeh over and cook the other side for another 5 minutes, or until golden.
- Pour the orange juice mixture into the pan and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced to a lovely thick glaze. Turn the tempeh once more during this time and spoon the sauce over the tempeh from time to time.
- Serve tempeh drizzled with any remaining sauce and a squeeze of lime, over brown rice, salad or in a wrap or sandwich.
