Orange Maple Tempeh Side PresentationTempeh is essentially fermented soy beans, pressed together into a mold which give it that firm texture, making it easy to grill. It is obviously a great vegan option but with the right flavor this can be anyone’s ‘go-to dish’ at a summer barbecue. Just like tofu, tempeh can absorb a lot of flavor so letting it sit in a marinade for a good 24 hours is best. For this orange maple tempeh recipe, I made a marinade using orange marmalade and maple as the main ingredients, balanced with fresh rosemary, garlic, and little bit of balsamic vinegar.
