Seasoned Tempeh Croutons Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


1/4 C avocado oil or other neutral vegetable oil

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1 brick tempeh, cut into bite size cubes


1Preheat oven to 375°F, if you want to bake the tempeh croutons.

2Combine oil, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, smoked paprika, sea salt, and ground pepper in a bowl.

3Coat tempeh pieces in the marinade.

4To pan fry the tempeh, heat a nonstick or cast iron pan over medium and place pieces in the pan slightly spaced apart. Cook on one side for about 3 minutes until very golden brown and then flip and cook about another 3 minutes. Lower heat if the pan becomes too hot or is smoking. You can flip the pieces onto the other remaining sides that aren’t golden brown, cooking about 1 to 2 minutes a side.

5To bake the tempeh, arrange the pieces in an even layer spaced apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat mat. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
