2 shallots, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c capers

Juice from one lemon
Chopped parsley

Slice tempeh & steam for 20-30 min. Then sauté the shallots in the oil until starting to soften & brown then add the garlic along with the capers, wine & broth. Then add the tempeh and simmer until the liquid is mostly absorbed. Finally add the lemon juice & parsley.

Quinoa pilaf:

Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion. Sauté until starting to soften & brown. Add garlic and stir. Add quinoa, broth, and raisins. Cook until broth is absorbed (15-20 min) then stir in the nuts. Garnish with parsley if using.
