      Awesome recipe! The flavors were amazing. Finally a way to make tempeh more interesting :)
      I didn't have pineapple juice handy so just used fresh pineapple chunks and added some hotsauce (I like it spicy). Its great over a salad as well instead of tortillas.
      Thank you!

      This recipe is PERFECT! Wow, what great flavor from the pineapple, soy sauce & lime. Does take awhile to make because of letting it sit up to 2 hours to marinate, but overall was very easy to prepare. The 5-grain tempeh that I used was nice and hearty and absorbed the flavors nicely. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

      My BH and I love this recipe - and he was once a self-proclaimed vegan-food hater! We both like a little spice in anything that can use it - and so for this recipe we add about 3/4 - 1 TBSP of chili powder. I've also used 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange when I don't have pineapple juice handy and it's turned out great each time. Thanks blucoat!
