Optional seasoning tips for tempeh

  • 1 to 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons peeled grated ginger
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Tabasco or other hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup or tomato paste

Note: if you find the tempeh to be too bitter, place tempeh patty in fry pan with 1” of water. Bring to a low boil over medium heat. Steam tempeh for a total of 10-12 minutes, flipping once at the halfway point. Then rinse, pat dry, and cool before cut into desired pieces.
