Tempeh is delicious but it needs to be cooked correctly to taste good. These baked tempeh fries with dill tahini sauce are my favorite way to enjoy tempeh.
These tempeh fries are so flavorful thanks to the marinade. A good marinade is key to making tempeh taste good in my opinion. Tempeh is like a sponge and just sucks up all of the flavor. The marinade for this tempeh is simple, you just need a few ingredients like soy sauce, vinegar and maple syrup. The sauce for these fries is also to die for. The miso really brings an umami flavor to the tahini sauce and the dill packs a fresh flavor.
