Vibrant Vegan Orange Glazed Tempeh

Join the always entertaining and enlightening Jason Wrobel, aka J-Wro, vegan celebrity chef, TV host, and all things delicious connoisseur, as he breaks out the tangy sweet and sour Asian inspired flavors you love with Orange Glazed Tempeh over Volcanic Rice. Yes, volcanic! This fluffy, nutty rice was grown at the base of a volcano.


The orange marinade uses fresh squeezed, organic orange juice, grated ginger, minced garlic, coconut aminos, rice wine, maple syrup, coriander, and pepper to create the gooey sweet orange goodness you're looking for. This goes over lightly grilled tempeh for one of the best toppings your rice could hope for. Garnish it with cilantro, lime, and black sesame seeds for extra flavor, color, and texture. This recipe is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein, and complex carbohydrates while also being almost supernaturally delicious. What did you expect? J-Wro only makes the best stuff!
