By marinating the tempeh the day before you plan to serve, this dish can be prepared in just a few minutes. Adapted from Vegetarians in Paridise. The tempeh needs to marinate 24 hours in the fridge.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Score tempeh on both sides, making shallow diagonal cuts about 1/4-inch apart. Cut tempeh into 6 portions and spread out in one layer in a baking dish.
  2. Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl, and pour over tempeh, turning to coat both sides. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 24 hours, turning pieces several times.
  3. Preheat barbecue and grill 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Remove to a serving platter and garnish with the slivered green onion. Save leftover marinade to use as a dipping sauce for a future recipe. Serves 6.

I bought 2 8oz packages of tempeh at $3.60(!) each for 3 people & we almost had leftovers. For us, a 4oz portion was enough for 1 person. So, I think 3.5lbs for 3 servings could be changed. But it would also depend on what else is being served. ;) BUT what a fabulous marinade! I didn't marinate it overnight but it was still delicious! I used my cast iron skillet instead of the grill & it was perfect. The sugars create nice caramelization. This is a definite keeper! Made for the 9/08 Vegetarian Swap.
