Ginger Cumin-Infused Tempeh 🥘

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

Tempeh need some pizazz? Try this bold, flavorful, and nutrient-packed recipe to spice up your meal! Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, garlic has natural antibacterial and antiviral properties, and cumin, ginger, and lemon all enhance digestion. Tempeh is a fermented soy product, so it’s easier to digest than other soy products, and is high in protein and vitamin B. See the full recipe below.


  • 1 package tempeh (check for gluten-free, if needed)

  • 1 tablespoon Bragg Liquid Aminos (or low sodium Tamari sauce)

  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic, pressed

  • ½ inch of fresh ginger, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin powder

  • Juice of 1/2 of 1 lemon

  • Pinch of black pepper


1. Thinly slice tempeh.

2. In a bowl, mix tempeh with all other ingredients and let marinate for at least 1 hour. (Put in the fridge if more than 1 hour). If you don't have an hour, the tempeh will still taste great!

3. Spread tempeh on a lightly oiled cast iron dish, glass or other oven-safe baking dish (extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil is best).

4. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Suggested Accompaniment

Serve with sautéed veggies and wild rice or sweet potatoes. Enjoy!
