Organic tempeh grab-and-go lunch

As a mom of two young kids, I'm lucky if I get out of the house with matching shoes much less a nutritious lunch. Oh, don't worry, the kids get awesome lunches (if I do say so myself!) but I always seem to run out of inspiration or time when it comes to my own. Last week, while lunching with my mother-in-law at an eclectic eatery in New Jersey, I happened to order an amazing salad with grilled tempeh, which got me thinking ... So, back home yesterday, I purchased a few packages of organic tempeh and a bottle of soy-ginger marinade (this Delicious Living ginger-garlic sauce would have worked as well). I cut the tempeh into 1-inch cubes, marinated in about 1/2 cup (or more) of dressing for about 20 minutes, then baked for 1/2 hour at 375 degrees, turning tempeh pieces every 10 minutes. The result? Super yummy protein-packed morsels. They're great on a bed of baby greens—the perfect quick, healthy lunch.
