Ingredients
  

  • 1 package Henry's Soy Original Tempeh (250g)
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnish Optional

Marinade

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp tamari
  • 1" piece ginger very finely minced
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice, with pulp (Can also use juice of 1/2 fresh orange or 2 tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate)
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • red chili flakes, to taste Optional

Instructions
 

  • Cut the tempeh into slices, between 0.25 - 0.5 inch thick.
  • Steam or poach the tempeh for 2-3 minutes. (to poach, simmer the tempeh in just enough water to cover.)
  • Remove the tempeh from the hot water and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients until they are well mixed
  • Add the tempeh slices to the marinade, stir gently to coat.
  • Allow the tempeh to marinate for at least 30 minutes. You can also keep the marinating tempeh in the fridge for up to 2 days. The longer you marinate the tempeh, the more flavour it will absorb.
  • Cook the tempeh on a hot grill, basting a couple times. Turn once to grill on both sides. Be sure to reserve a few tablespoons of the marinade!
