4 tsp olive oil 20 mL

Before you start

Tempeh can be found in the chilled section of health food stores. Most often it is a compact 8oz (240g) square patty. It must be defrosted in the refrigerator a few hours before it can be used in the recipe.

Method

  1. Cut each 8oz (240g) tempeh block into 4 squares, then cut each square into 2 triangles.
  2. Combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and garlic in a bowl. Place the tempeh into the bowl then let marinate for about 30 min, turning the pieces once to cover them well. Make sure that both sides of the tempeh are covered with the marinade.
  3. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the tempeh pieces and sauté until golden-brown, about 5 min. Serve.
