This recipe transforms bland, flavorless tempeh into something wonderful. Tempeh is coated in spices and then cooked on the stovetop in white wine until soft, tender, and flavorful. They're topped with fresh tomatoes, garlic, and herbs. The skewers are entirely optional, but they help the overall presentation in this easy meal that's perfect for summer.
