grilled tempeh

this is very easy but it takes time for the marinade to penetrate the tempeh.
  • 1 block of tempeh
  • juice of 1 ripe lime
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t cider vinegar
  • 1/4 rice vinegar or mirin
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 T tequila
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 T freshly ground cumin
  • 1/4 t red pepper flakes
Mix all ingredients except tempeh and put into the shallow rectangular bowl. Cut tempeh into 1/2 in strips. Add the tempeh to the bowl of marinade, cut side down so the sauce penetrates faster. Let stand for 45 minutes, turn the tempeh pieces to soak the other side. Let stand for 1 hour. The sauce should be almost entirely absorbed. Throw on the grill and cook till brown, about 10 minutes on each side. Enjoy as finger food, as an addition to fajitas, or in a pita bread with greens, cucumber and tomato. Or on top of a salad instead of chicken.
