Scale

Ingredients

For the smoky version:

  • 7 oz (200 gr) (soy-based) tempeh
  • 1 teaspoon mild mustard
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium tamari (or liquid aminos or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika powder*

For the crispy version:

  • 7 oz (200 gr) block (soy-based) tempeh
  • 1 teaspoon mild mustard
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium tamari (or liquid aminos or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast*

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You can also use a silicone mat.

 Cut the tempeh into medium size cubes. Don’t cut the tempeh into too small cubes as they will burn more easily.  

Place the cubes into a mixing bowl.

Add the tamari and mustard to the tempeh, stir to combine until the tempeh has absorbed most of the tamari and mustard.

Add the nutritional yeast  and/or smoked paprika powder and mix again.

Spread the tempeh out across the baking sheet, then bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until golden brown with crispy edges.

If you would like to bake the tempeh in the air fryer:

Add the tempeh to the basket and bake at 375°F for about 10-15 minutes. Toss halfway by shaking the basket.

Remove the tempeh from the oven or air fryer and serve warm.


Notes

Warm this baked tempeh is delicious, but any leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
