Gluten-free option: Use gluten-free soy sauce or tamari and gluten-free tempeh.
The Art of Perfect Tempeh
Many people—including me—prefer to steam tempeh before using it in a recipe. But the name of the game here is 30 minutes or less, right? If you prefer a tender, less dense tempeh texture, use the sauce ingredients as a marinade. Cube the tempeh, place it in a shallow dish with a lid or into a plastic bag, and pour the marinade over it. Store in the refrigerator overnight (or up to 3 days) before using it in this recipe.
