Maple Glazed Tempeh

by Nicci on 01/19/2010

I finally decided to use the tempeh I purchased at the grocer last week. I searched online and came across maple glazed recipes…sounded mouth watering to me.

Maple Glazed Baked Tempeh

Prep time: 10 minutes, plus marinading time
Cook time: 30 minutes

  1. 8 ounces tempeh (I used flax tempeh)
  2. 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  3. 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  4. 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  5. 2 cloves garlic, peeled, crushed and chopped
  6. 1/2 teaspoon powdered chipotle (or a couple pinches of cayenne)

In a saucepan over high heat, steam the tempeh for 10 minutes. Cool. While steaming, combine all the ingredients in a shallow dish or pan.  Slice the tempeh into triangles or cubes.  Soak in the marinade for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.   Bake in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes.

Yum!  This dish was super easy and delicious.

Usually we eat brown rice, but this yummy white rice was left over from sushi last night.  Every bite was good and Chris actually liked the tempeh.

Have a good night,

I had a package of tempeh verging on its best-by date and had been looking around for a good recipe. We made this last night and it was fantastic! I made an error and accidentally added a teaspoon of chili powder to it– it gave it a nice kick. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I just tried Tempeh for the 1st time recently and really like it. This recipe sounds great, think I’ll go mix up a marinade :)

re: your comment on my blog, I found the individually sized sabra’s at Costco! I was so excited!

I have never tried tempeh. it’s always sort of freaked me out. But it looks good and so many bloggers rave about it. I’ll have to try it!

Wow, that looks so good! I’ve been looking for more tofu and tempeh recipes and I’m definitely going to try this one!

YUM-O!! Looks delicious!

Nicci January 21, 2010 at 12:48 pm

I wasn’t sure about Tempeh, but Chris liked it more than I did. I think the key is the marinating time. I only had 3 hours before dinner. Still a pretty delicious dish.

Danielle (Coffee Run) January 20, 2010 at 5:29 pm

Tempeh and maple syrup are 2 of my favorite things! This sounds delish :)

Isn’t tempeh awesome?! I love it! It is my favorite meat substitute of all time…even better than tofu!

Diana @ frontyardfoodie January 20, 2010 at 10:35 am

Wow! That looks great! I’ve never had tempeh before but I am vegan so I truly should. I love Asian cuisine.

Lauren @ Eater not a runner January 20, 2010 at 9:59 am

Taylor@Joy of Food January 20, 2010 at 9:29 am

Mmm amazing recipe :)

emily January 20, 2010 at 8:35 am

I love tempeh!! Yours looks really good.
My family makes a bbq “sloppy joe” tempeh that meat eaters love, and a faux chicken salad made with tempeh that’s also a huge favorite.
(Which is worse – air quotes, or gratuitous use of the word faux? I went with both.)

Nicci January 21, 2010 at 12:48 pm

BBQ sloppy joe tempeh: please share your recipe!

Erica January 20, 2010 at 8:12 am

I wish I liked tempeh because this dish looks awesome! Love much healthier “take out”. I just can’t do the texture!

Melinda January 20, 2010 at 2:57 am

Oh yea, that looks great. I wish I could by some tempeh around here.

Jasmine @ Eat Move Write January 19, 2010 at 10:49 pm

That looks amazing! I haven’t ever cooked with tempeh. I need to give it a try.

Genie January 19, 2010 at 8:49 pm

My mouth is watering!! This looks absolutely delish!! I will have to try it the next time I see tempeh at a store. It isn’t readily available here.

I also didn’t realize that you could get dry chipotle as a spice! I MUST FIND IT!!

Jolene ( January 19, 2010 at 8:37 pm

I haven’t tried tempeh before … seems very versatile … what you did with it sounds great!

Mari January 19, 2010 at 8:29 pm

fittingbackin January 19, 2010 at 8:19 pm

oooh that looks so good! I’ve never had it either but it looks like general tso’s or something – fantastic. And it’s on white rice so BONUS POINTS!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm

Jess (Fit Chick in the City) January 19, 2010 at 7:27 pm

Angela (Angelalovesfood) January 19, 2010 at 6:45 pm

mmm, it looks like yummy orange chicken or something (i forgot the name! shame) This is like my fourth time reading about tempeh. I would love to try it, the only thing that sucks is waiting for it to bake, bc I’m the “I want it now!” kind of girl, ha.
