This is great when you need have some tempeh and can't be bothered making anything too difficult. My toddler loves anything covered in tomato sauce and tempeh contains all the amino acids. Making the sauce is quite quick - I turned the heat up and managed to save some time. And waiting for the tempeh to bake gave me enough time to go check Zaar for tomorrow's meal! Good recipe Yogi!

I just recently learned that tempeh can actually taste good if you bake it. I cut a slab into 6 triangular pieces and baked in the sauce, covered. I uploaded a photo (how was there not already one on here?). Really great, easy recipe. Thanks Yogi!

This was so delicious...and I agree with another reviewer that it reminds me of a "tomatoe-y barbeque sauce." It smells so fantastic while it's cooking! And the vinegar and tamari really seem to do something special to the tempeh. Great sauce...will see how tofu holds up to it next. **Update...drained, froze, then thawed some extra firm tofu to try with this great sauce...it was good, but not as good as the tempeh. I think the natural flavor of the tempeh and the great taste of this sauce just work really well together, period.

Wow! So delicious! I used 2 8-oz packages of tempeh instead of just one, and there was plenty of sauce for it. Everyone loved it. 2 of my non-vegetarian friends even asked for the recipe. I'll be making this one often, it's fast, easy, and wonderful!

it was okay. it was actually better the second day but we had to add some sweet curry ketchup to make it better... i think it was just missing some sweetener - i would add some honey or maple syrup to it next time... it needs that. We mixed it with broccoli and rice and rolled it up in toritllas.

This dish is, by far, the best tempeh I have ever tasted. I absolutely loved it (esp. w/green beans and some quinoa). Additionally, I did not have tomato sauce so I used pasta sauce (already seasoned and w/olives and mushrooms). It was simply delightful. Thank you so much, Yogi.

This is so good. I made it exactly by the directions, using Tamari and Flax Tempeh. I served it over quinoa and it was just great. Because I have to fix two meals when I make tempah, I put it in the baking dish about 40 minutes before I put it in the oven. I don't know if that changed anything, but it couldn't have been better.

I think of this as sort of a tomatoey barbeque sauce. It makes for a very 'meaty' sort of vegetarian dish. I serve with baked potatoes and lemon garlic greens.

pretty good :)...i adjusted things slightly as i went along...more onion, added peppers, garlic and 'shrooms...used some soy, and some Braggs till it seem right, also my tomato sauce was a spicy version and my vineger= ACV...we liked it and would most def make it again...very easy to throw together and found it to be extra yummy the second day (i tend to like "saucey thangz"- better the second day :)- this sauce could work with a lot of things :) -Thanks yogi
