Tempeh Tuesday: Orange-Balsamic Glazed Tempeh over Greens

We are currently busy working hard to get our new store ready for business, so we apologize, it may be a little while before we are able to post again! In the mean time, enjoy this tempeh recipe! And stay tuned for details on the new store opening!


1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh basil
1 teaspoon finely minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
24 ounces tempeh, cut into 4 (6-ounce) slices
2 bunches kale or collards, rinsed well, stems trimmed, left whole
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


1. Combine orange juice concentrate, vinegar, oil, soy sauce, garlic, basil and parsley in a skillet over medium heat. When the mixture is hot, arrange tempeh slices in the mixture and cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Turn and brown on the other side, about 4 minutes more.
2. While the tempeh braises, place about 1/2-inch water and a pinch of salt in the bottom of a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add greens and steam until they are just wilted and bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain well and slice into bite-size pieces. Arrange greens on a platter. Arrange tempeh slices on top of greens and sprinkle with lemon juice. Serve hot.
