This Sweet and Smoky Tempeh is an absolute weeknight staple for me. The simple marinade is made of five pantry staples in equal parts, so it is one of the few recipes I actually have memorized!
If you are unsure whether you like tempeh, I would recommend that you try this recipe! Some people say that it helps to boil the tempeh first, but I have never done that. I just whip up a marinade and toss the tempeh cubes in for 30 minutes to an hour. The marinating is absolutely necessary! For this bowl, I paired the tempeh with some marinated kale, roasted sweet potatoes, and topped it with a spicy cilantro cashew sauce.
