For the tempeh:

For serving:


  1. Cut tempeh into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, add orange juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder, ginger, orange zest, and red pepper flakes. Whisk to combine. Add tempeh; stir. Let tempeh sit in the marinade for at least 1 hour.
  3. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add tempeh and leftover marinade.
  4. In a small bowl, add starch. Slowly pour in a little bit of hot water, stirring, to make a slurry. Pour the slurry over the skillet; stir. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce is thickened.
  5. Serve tempeh over quinoa and broccoli. Top with sesame seeds and orange zest.
