Pickle Beets Ingredients:

Make the marinade:

Set the oven to 225 degrees Celcius.

Cut the Tempeh in thin slices.

Marinate the Tempeh in the marinade while you prepare the rest.

Prepare the root vegetables for baking in the oven:

Drizzle over oil and maple syrup and season with flake salt.

Put the root vegetables in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes before adding the marinated  Tempeh and continue baking for about 20 minutes until everything has a nice color.

Put the green peas and the chopped spring onion in the bowl where you marinated the Tempeh and toss them around in the remaining sauce.

A few minutes before it is done add the green peas and chopped spring onion to the oven pan. Sprinkle them over the root vegetables and the Tempeh and put back in the oven to be heated a little.

Serve with pickled beets.
