    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    These are amazing! When these cook, the balsamic marinade becomes a delicious caramelized coating. Use these nuggets over salads, over rice or to accompany pasta. They make great little finger snacks too. Cooking time does not include marinade time.

    Units: US | Metric

    For the marinade


    1. 1
      Cut tempeh into 1/2 inch wide cubes.
    2. 2
      Combine the marinade ingredients in a container with a lid, stir to combine.
    3. 3
      Add tempeh, cover and shake well until all pieces are coated.
    4. 4
      Pace in refrigerator for one hour or overnight.
    5. 5
      Shake container every now and again (when you think of it) to coat all pieces. The tempeh will begin to absorb all the marinade.
    6. 6
      When ready to cook, heat a non stick skillet over medium low heat.
    7. 7
      Add tempeh and any liquid and cook for about 10 minutes, turning pieces until they begin to caramelize.
    8. 8
      Serve immediately or keep in a covered container in fridge.

      Oh, yum. These are crispy, crunchy, flavorful, deliciousness. I added some korean veggie stir-fry sauce to the marinade(I bought mine at Stop 'n' Shop, I highly reccomend it). These are super simple to make- perfect for a healthy, vegan meal in a time crunch. Loved it!

      I thought these were great. Mine were a bit spicy- definitely due to the red pepper flakes. I ended up marinating them for just over 24 hours and I put them on a salad (baby spinach, carrots, tomato, avocado, and sauteed onions & mushrooms. I topped the salad with a tiny bit of extra virgin olive oil & balsamic and I was set to go. Delicious! Best tempeh recipe I've made!

      This was a very easy recipe to make and tasted great! I varied the spices and used oregano and red pepper flakes instead. It was slightly spicy but it was just perfect and really flavorful!
