Tempeh out of the package resembles the shimmery metallic rainbow of a fish’s skin.  So I got to thinking, not fish sticks but “tempeh-sticks”!  One bite and you get nutty, toasty goodness with quite a bit of protein.  These brown and crisp up very well, but if you’re really in need of a crust I guess you could bread with panko before baking or frying.  I popped the lightly seasoned broccoli and tempeh sticks into a 500 degree oven.  The rest is history.  I did use a good amount of salt because both tasted pretty good with a salty kick.  I tossed the broccoli and tempeh-sticks in with the pasta, added a bit of olive oil, topped mine with a little parmesean and dinner was served.
