Sautéed tempeh is a fun cooking technique and can lead to many, many dishes which you can create in just minutes.
But first, remember to steam your tempeh. While you do not have to steam your pre-packaged tempeh before sautéing it (because it's usually already pre-cooked), I highly recommend you do this for 10 minutes anyway. Not only will this process remove some bitter overtones, but the tempeh will swell a bit which helps it to accept more flavors.
Here are some more sauté ideas...
