Tempeh Orange Chicken 

I decided to experiment with tempeh again by swapping it into an orange chicken recipe. On the first pass, the tempeh was boiled (to hydrate and soften) marinated, breaded, and shallow fried. It wasnt great- the texture was unappealing and marinating alone provided very little flavor. On the second try it was much better- this time boiling again, then grinding the tempeh into crumbles, seasoning with spices, forming it, breading it, and then shallow frying. In a sense they're tempeh "falafel".
