ingredients

  • 2 (8 ounce) blocks tempeh
  • 1/4 cup ground toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons red miso
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup water

Method

  • Step 1

    Mix together all ingredients except tempeh in a big bowl. Crumble tempeh into the marinade and let sit for at least 30 minutes.

  • Step 2

    When ready to cook, heat a wide pan over medium-low heat and add tempeh crumbles. Add a few splashes of water if the tempeh soaked up all the liquid. Cover pan and steam tempeh for a few minutes.

  • Step 3

    Uncover pan and let the liquid cook off, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Once the tempeh turns a darker golden brown and starts to char, turn off heat and tempeh is ready to serve.
