What's For Dinner?

I did the 21 Day Fix back in December and I managed to make a few of the recipes suggested in the program.  I've made different versions of the same recipe, but this one was pretty darn tasty.  So much so that I've printed out a copy for myself to use on the regular.  It's easy-peasy (that's a word, right?) and you most likely have all the marinade ingredients on hand already.

The recipe is for your basic baked tempeh.  An easy weeknight dish that you can throw together in a flash!

If you aren't familiar with tempeh, here's the low-down:  It is a fermented soy (and before you get your panties in a wad about soy, please know that this is not a processed form of soy, which is where all the scary soy whispers come from).  It is very close to soy in it's whole form and fermented foods have health benefits such as aiding in digestion and nutrient absorption.  Want to know more?  Check this out from Whole Foods (and it even includes more recipes!)

This can be prepped the night before or any time you have 10 minutes to spare before dinner time.  Serve with a side of green beans and some roasted sweet potatoes and dinner is served!

Try it out and let me know what you think!

Basic Baked Tempeh
21 Day Fix Approved!

1 16oz package organic tempeh
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 stalk rosemary, leaves minced
1 tsp marjoram
1 tsp onion powder
¼ c. red wine vinegar
water as desired, to thin

Slice tempeh into in half, then cut into triangles or strips. Steam tempeh for about 10 minutes. This
helps the tempeh better absorb the marinade.
While the tempeh is steaming. Mix all of the remaining ingredients in a bowl well. Add water as desired
to thin.
Place the marinade and tempeh in a sealed bowl or a ziploc bag. Let the tempeh marinate for at least 1 hour up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 375. Place tempeh on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15
minutes. Flip and coat with remaining marinade. Bake for about 10 more minutes.
