Teriyaki Baked Tempeh

Recipe: Teriyaki Baked Tempeh

Protein is an important nutrient on my Beauty Diet — it is essential for healthy and beautiful skin, hair, and nails. It can also aid in weight loss because it is the most satiating macronutrient. However, it can sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian options that are high in protein. Tempeh is an excellent vegan protein source that taste delicious when roasted with a light teriyaki sauce.

 

 

Ingredients:

8 oz tempeh, cubed
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the cubed tempeh with the teriyaki sauce until coated. Spread the tempeh evenly in one layer across the prepared pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
