PREP TIME: 5 minutes
ACTIVE TIME: 30 minutes
One 8-oz. Package tempeh (soy-free if
¼ cup liquid aminos (or gluten-free tamari;
use coconut aminos to be soy-free)
¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon maple syrup
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Black pepper to taste
1. Line a plate with paper towels. Crumble
the tempeh into small pieces and set aside.
2. Combine the liquid aminos, broth, 1
tablespoon of the olive oil, the liquid
smoke, maple syrup, cumin, and garlic
powder in a cup. Stir until combined.
3. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium heat. Add the
tempeh crumbles and toss to coat in oil. Cook for about 1 minute, then add the sauce. Cook, stirring every
few minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed and the tempeh is tender with a crispy exterior.
