This one was not a winner for me. I subbed tofu instead of tempeh, doubled the marinade and let it marinade all day after pressing the tofu for several hours. After all that, the tofu still had no flavor. The honey mixture never really thickened, so it just slid right off the skewers. I do agree it was easy to make, but not one I will make again.
Grilled Tempeh Skewers
The salty-sweet glaze complements the nutty, slightly tangy flavor of the tempeh. If you've never experimented with this soybean cake before, this is a good recipe to start with.
