Lita's Loves Marinated Tempe

Another “hit” for Turtle Island Foods, Inc. – you know those same people who make Tofurky (including the new Tofurky pizza I mentioned a few weeks ago)?

Here’s the latest product I’ve tried from them – Marinated Tempeh. I purchased 2 varieties at Whole Foods last week:

2 varieties of marinated tempeh

Yummy Sesame Garlic and Coconut Curry.

They’re very quick and easy to prepare. Just last night I made dinner with the Sesame Garlic strips. Here’s what I did:

1. Heated a tablespoon of safflower oil in a pan on medium high heat.

2. Added 1/2 a sliced onion and let it cook for about 5 minutes.

3. Added 4 sliced mushrooms and let them cook and brown.

5. Pushed the onion and mushroom to the sides of the pan and layed 5 slices of the tempe (only about 125 calories total) in the center of the pan – allowed them to brown on each side about 1.5-2 minutes.

I had already steamed some rice and tossed a little salad and put those on my plate. When I added the tempeh – VOILA

tempe for dinner

an incredibly tasty meal was born!

Super yummy, low in calories and perfect for this chilly evening at home.

Enjoy,
