Tempeh Steak

I’ve been busy celebrating the holidays, moving into our new house, and planning a wedding. Needless to say, I haven’t had much time to experiment with new recipes, and instead I’ve been making meals that are already on my blog {luckily there are a lot of them!}

When we moved into our house three weeks ago, this is the first meal I decided to cook. It was kind of a “throw together whatever is in the kitchen” kinda meal, but it quickly turned into one of our new favorites. Cauliflower Steaks, Green Beans, Mashed Sweet Potato, and these Tempeh Steaks.


-Tempeh, cut into 4

-1/2 – 1 teaspoon smoked or regular paprika

-2 Tablespoons Tamari

-2 Tablespoons water

-1 teaspoon sage

-1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil + 2 Tablespoons water for cooking


-Marinade the tempeh in tamari, water, sage, & paprika for at least 20 minutes. *The longer you marinade, the better. I did this first, and cooked/prepared everything else while the tempeh was marinading, flipping over every 20 minutes*

-On medium – high heat, in a non stick pan, add oil to the pan then add the tempeh + the marinade to the pan

-Cover for 15 minutes allowing the tempeh to steam. Then, uncover & cook until golden brown on one side, about 4 – 5 minutes

-Flip & cook the other side, another 3 – 4 minutes. Add water if necessary {if the pan is getting t0o dry/tempeh is sticking}

-Serve warm
