  • 1/2 cup marsala cooking wine
  • 1/2-1 cup water (depending on the consistency you want)


  1. Add your cubed tempeh to a bowl and toss with flour, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Let it marinate for around 30 minutes.
  2. While waiting, slice up your mushrooms and onions. Add the veggies and butter to a pan over medium heat and sauté until cooked.
  3. Add your seasoned tempeh to the pan. Add marsala and water and stir well. Bring to a boil.
