I don't cook with tempeh a lot so I resolved to try it out this week on Sunday Serving. Tempeh tends to have more calories than over faux meats, but it's packed with protein punch. This recipe is a vegetarianized version of chicken or veal piccata. A beautifully delicate lemon-caper sauce lightly dressing a triangle of sage-cornmeal encrusted tempeh. Serve over buttered egg noodles or salad or even use as a sandwich filler!

Ingredients

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 large or 4 medium)
  • 2 cups dry white wine (I used Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay blend, but you could also use Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 1 Tbsp capers, drained and rinsed well
  • 1/4 tsp SnP, each
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 3 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup soymilk
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp fresh sage, chopped finely
  • 1/2 tsp SnP, each
  • 2 8oz packages of tempeh
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO, divided

Preparation

  1. Add garlic to a small pot heating over medium heat. Saute constantly for about 20-30 seconds. Do not let it burn! Add the remaining ingredients except the cornstarch. Cook about 10 minutes and do not boil. Stir is dissolved cornstarch and cook another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. While the sauce is cooking you can start on the tempeh. Whisk together the soymilk and mustard in a shallow dish. Combine the cornmeal, flour, sage and SnP in a second shallow dish.
  3. Lay each tempeh piece flat in landscape format and cut vertically into three equal portions. Then cut each square on a hard diagonal into two pieces. In the end you should have 12 pieces.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add 1/2 Tbsp EVOO. Dip six of the triangles into the soymilk mixture then dredge in the flour mixture. Add to the skillet and cook on each side for 3-5 minutes. If the pan gets dry, spray the triangles with cooking spray. Repeat with the remaining EVOO and tempeh.
