Busy work nights require a quick and easy meal. Do I have your attention? Tempeh is my go-to for nights like these. Unlike it’s delicious counterpart, tofu, tempeh does not have to be strained and will absorb marinade flavors quickly. There is always room for tofu in my house but again, we need QUICK tonight. Tempeh is packed with protein which is why I love substituting it for meat. A simple marinade helps to develop the tempeh’s already nutty flavor and since quinoa
is a quick grain to prepare I love pairing the two. We will dress the quinoa with a simple Asian-Style dressing and some edamame so that we eat our veggies too!
8. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 tsp sesame oil, vinegar, honey, and remaining tbs of soy sauce until emulsified. Pour the dressing over the quinoa and toss. Serve at room temperature.
Marinated Tempeh with Asian-Style quinoa is so simple and hearty that this quick dinner is dressed to impress, even after a long day!
