  • Yield: 12 slices 1x



  • 1 8 oz. package tempeh, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 c. gluten free soy sauce (or liquid aminos)
  • 1/3 c. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika


  1. Add the marinade into a shallow dish, mixing it up until well incorporated. Place the tempeh slices into the dish so it can absorb the marinade. Allow to set for at least 20 minutes. You can even allow it to set overnight.
  2. Heat up a nonstick skillet on medium heat. If you do not use a nonstick, you will need approximately 1 tsp. of olive oil. Place slices of marinaded tempeh into the pan and allow to crisp/brown for 2-3 minutes per side. Set on a paper towel-lined plate to cool.
