Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Using a steamer basket in a pot of boiling water with 1/2 cup brewed Chai Oolong, steam the tempeh for about 5-10 minute, depending on your tempeh. Most packaged varieties need on the longer side.
  3. Remove tempeh from the steamer basket.
  4. Coat with the Plum Sauce and lay on foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 450F for 5-10 minutes, until the sauce is darkened in color.
  5. Meanwhile, steam the radish greens with the same tea/water as the tempeh.
  6. Add butternut puree to the serving plate.
  7. Place glazed tempeh on top.
  8. Top with greens and pickle.
  9. Serve.

  1. The glazed tempeh looks great. I made something similar using orange juice and a number of other ingredients and used it in a rice and veggie salad.
    We produced Betsy’s Tempeh for 9 1/2 years in Mich. back in the mid 80’s little did I know that it is becoming more popular all the time.
