Recipe type: Main Dishes
Serves: 4
  • 1 package (8oz) tempeh
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • *for the maple mustard sauce*
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (can also use agave)
  • ¼ cup white wine (can sub with AVC)
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  1. First, slice the tempeh into thin slices (about ⅛" inch) and prepare the mushrooms.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium-high in a large pan, and add in the tempeh slices. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, until golden brown and toasted, then flip and allow the other side to brown as well. Add in the mushrooms (you may need to add more olive oil), and lower the heat.
  3. Allow to cook until mushrooms are softened and golden brown.
  4. While that cooks, make the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, white wine, and garlic salt.
  5. When everything looks golden brown and toasty, turn off the heat and add in the sauce. Stir everything together. The sauce will thicken as it sits. Serve immediately!
