Garlic and Ginger Marinated Tempeh

If you’re looking for a meat alternative, tempeh is a good source of protein and other vitamins and minerals. I always get the Trader Joe’s organic 3-grain tempeh. It contains cultured organic soybeans, and the 3 organic grains – they are brown rice, barley, and millet. Because it’s fermented, it contains probiotics which help with our digestive system.

You can slice or crumble the tempeh. In this recipe, I sliced the tempeh into 1/4 inch thick and marinated it in tamari or low sodium soy sauce with minced garlic and ginger. I used olive oil and pan-fried it.
