Baked Maple-Mustard Tempeh

I’ve said this before and I will never hesitate to say it again- I adore Terry Walters. This recipe is from her book, Clean Food. I made some minor adjustments based on what I had in my fridge. You can’t go wrong with ANY of her recipes- they’re simple, clean, and delicious.

I served the tempeh with baked risotto and quick-boiled broccoli with sesame oil. The broccoli is easy- chop into florets, boil until just green and tender. Lightly drizzle sesame oil and rice vinegar on top. Sprinkle sesame seeds and salt!

This recipe is super easy and it is must-make.

• 2 8 oz packages of tempeh (I prefer the kind with flax)

• 1/4 cup olive oil

• 2 tbsp stone ground mustard

• 2 tbsp maple syrup

• 2 tbsp lemon juice

• 2 tbsp dark soy sauce

  1. Cut the tempeh across into 1/2 inch strips. Steam for approximately 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. In a shallow baking pan, mix together the rest of the ingredients with a whisk. Marinate tempeh for 30 minutes, 15 minutes on each side.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, 10 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve warm and enjoy!

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
