This was my first attempt at making tempeh, and I am happy I chose this recipe. The sauce turned out like a bbq sauce, and the texture of the tempeh was a bit chewy, which I liked. I posted a picture of the tempeh for others to see.
Delicious! Very flavorful... Anything would be wonderful made with this sauce! Yum Yum....
Very good and easy tempeh dish! I ended up with more marinade than I thought I would, but it would be good to use with tofu or something else... I put my tempeh over room temperature baby spinach and it was a nice combo. The spinach helped balance out the sweet and tangy flavor of the tempeh.
