The tequila cooks off in the cooking but leaves an unbelievable flavor. This recipe is from a "Turtle Island Tempeh" label and it is delicious!

I think this is great! This was my second attempt at cooking tempeh. I love the marinade used for this. It leaves a slightly sweet flavor in the tempeh. I allowed my tempeh to soak overnight and was happy with that. Tempeh is not my husband's favorite, but it's so healthy and nutty I could eat it all of the time. I was so impressed with this marinade that I can imagine using it for tofu or meats. Thanks for posting, Bergy. I enjoyed this!

This is a great, unique recipe- the flavors work great together. I sliced the tempeh into "slabs" to marinate for 4 hours, and it was a good size for sauteing and soaking up the marinade flavors. Definitely saute with seasonal veggies, as just the tempeh would be too plain for a main course.

I made this for my sister and I, and while I hate to only give a one star review, neither of us could eat this. I followed the recipe to a T, and as the previous rater stated, the marinade smelled like a garlic margarita (in a good way!!), however, for me, the end result was inedible. There was a very strong "chemically" taste in the marinated tempeh that neither of us could get over. Maybe it was just bad tempeh? Hope others have better luck with this recipe.
