I just spent the past 21 Days doing Beachbody's Ultimate Reset. More details and results to come in a later post. The Ultimate Reset I am doing is taking me into the world of Vegan foods because they are so good for your system...and I kinda like it. I am so new to this vegetarian/vegan stuff. I am a girl who definitely likes her steak and chicken! This program gave me the opportunity to try tempeh. Tempeh is made from cooked and slightly fermented soybeans and formed into a patty, similar to a very firm veggie burger (I know that SOUNDS gross). You can find tempeh in the refrigerated vegan/organic section of your grocery, next to the tofu. I made mine using the recipe below, and it gave the tempeh a bacon like flavor. I used the tempeh in my Nori rolls (another recipe from the reset), but it is also amazing by itself!
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
1½ tsp. sesame oil
1½ tsp. 100% pure organic maple syrup
½ clove garlic, chopped
4 oz. tempeh, cut into ½-inch strips
Combine vinegar, Bragg Liquid Aminos, oil, maple syrup, and garlic
in a small bowl; mix well. Place marinade in a shallow dish; place
tempeh in dish and turn several times to coat well on all sides.
Marinate for 1 hour, covered, in refrigerator, turning once after 30
minutes. Preheat oven to 350° F. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Turn over
and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until golden brown.
