gentaotemp_fOkay, this is so yummy…. had to make a second batch! I had a craving for General Tao tempeh I just couldn’t shake this week. So, I searched for some recipes, played around with the ingredients, and voila! Quick, and easy. Serve with brown rice, or even quinoa. This is the first time I make black bean-soy tempeh. Boy, is it good! Another batch on the way. 🙂 I’ve actually doubled this recipe and freeze leftovers.
