Asian Orange Tempeh

Finally back 1 week later. I have been wanting to post so badly, but with the long weekend, and being away from my place/routine for five nights, this was the first chance I’ve had!

I seriously loved this recipe, and it was super easy to make . . . I definitely think this will become a weeknight regular for us!

Ingredients:

Soba noodles  — the organic Hakubaku is what I use — highly recommend

-8 oz tempeh

Ingredients for the Orange Sauce:

-1/2 Cup vegetable broth

-1/4 Cup orange juice

-3 Tablespoons maple syrup

-2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar

-2 Tablespoons Tamari

-2 cloves garlic, minced

-4 teaspoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch, + 2 Tablespoons of water

-2 teaspoons orange zest

-1 teaspoon siracha

-1/2 teaspoon pepper

-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

-1/2 teaspoon celery salt

-Garnish with: green onions and sesame seeds

Directions:

-In a medium bowl combine all the sauce ingredients (except the arrowroot powder) and whisk together well

-Cut the tempeh into 20 – 24 small pieces, equal size, and place them in the sauce. Place that in the fridge to marinate for about 2 hours . . . feel free to marinate the tempeh even longer if you’d like. After you are done marinating, continue to the next steps

-Bring a pot of water to a boil

-Place the soba noodles in a pot of boiling water to cook. Cook to package instructions

-At the same time, remove the tempeh from the sauce and place the sauce into a small sauce pan (reserving 1/4 Cup for the next step) and mix in the arrowroot dissolved in water. Cook on medium heat for 4 – 5 minutes until thickened

-While you are cooking the noodles and making the sauce, take the 1/4 Cup sauce, toss with marinated tempeh and place on a pan. Cook 4 – 7 minutes, until nice and hot

-Drain the soba noodles

-For serving, place noodles on plate, then add your desired amount of tempeh and orange sauce

-Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds

-For a side I just steamed up some fresh broccoli and spinach

XOXO

I had so much fun last weekend, Memorial Day Weekend! My sister came and stayed with me for two nights! We were able to get dinner, go on a walk by the ocean, and Saturday night we went to Boston to see Selena Gomez!
