Serves 4 to 6
What You Need:
  • 1 8-ounce package multigrain tempeh, 1/2-inch cubed
  • 3⁄4 cup onion, 1/8-inch diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus additional for cooking
  • 1⁄2 cup crimini mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon each dried basil, thyme, and rosemary
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon each garlic and onion powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1⁄4 cup whole-wheat or spelt flour
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
What You Do:
  1. Place tempeh in a steamer basket and cook for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a skillet, sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté an additional 3 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and seasonings, and sauté an additional 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and set aside.
