Ginger Orange Glazed Tempeh and Broccoli

A quick and easy stir fry is a great week night meal!  This one contains tempeh as the protein source, which is a heart healthy alternative to meat.  It is a fermented soy bean cake, which may sound different, but trust me, it is delicious when tossed with a marinade, cooked and added to stir fry.  I combine it with broccoli for plenty of fiber, and toss it with a flavorful sweet and tangy orange sauce.  It is satisfying and hearty served over brown rice!
