Recipe by Better Nature

55 min


  • 400g Organic Tempeh, cut into thick strips
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger crushed
  • 4 finely chopped spring onions
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ zested lime
  • 250ml vegetable stock

  1. Heat the tempeh strips in a preheated oven at 150ºC (gas mark 2) for 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Prepare the components of the marinade and mix together in a large saucepan. Heat until the liquid starts to boil.
  3. Cover the tempeh in the marinade and transfer back to the oven for 30 minutes, turning over regularly to coat it. Once most of the liquid has reduced, remove the tempeh from the oven.
