Tempeh Poached in Lemon & Garlic


TempehYield: 4 servings

Tempeh must be marinated or poached; it absorbs a lot of liquid, so it is best that it be fully hydrated before grilling or adding to a dish.


1 pkg tempeh
2 cups vegetable broth, no salt
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, minced
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Juice of fresh lemon
1 tbs honey
1/4 cup warm water


In a deep skillet place tempeh, broth, salt, garlic, lemon zest and juice. Cover and bring broth to a boil. Reduce to simmer and continue heating for 20 minutes. Flip tempeh once. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Set oven to broil. Mix water and honey together and brush over tempeh. Broil until honey is glazed. Turn tempeh over and repeat glazing and cooking.
Cut into 4 triangles and serve.

"Tempeh is an excellent source of calcium and phytosterols which makes this a superfood meal."
