  • 12 ounces tempeh
  • 2 tablespoons high heat oil I like avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • dash salt & pepper


  • Steam the tempeh: bring water to a boil then place the tempeh over top in a steamer basket. Cover with a lid and steam for 15 minutes, flipping the tempeh half way through. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Cut the tempeh: Once the tempeh is cool enough to handle, cut it into triangles. Slice the block in half lengthwise then cut into triangles. You should have about 16 pieces.
  • Make the marinade: in a large bowl, combine the avocado oil, broth, vinegar, seasoning, garlic, and salt & pepper. Stir to combine, Add the tempeh to the bowl then use a spoon to toss until the pieces are evenly coated. Cover the bowl with a towel or wrap, then allow to marinate for a minimum of 1 hour or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Cook the tempeh: Preheat the oven to 375°F then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Arrange the tempeh pieces on top of the baking sheet then bake in the oven for 20 mins, flipping half way through. Serve warm and enjoy!
