orange molasses tempeh with smoked green beans

i'm going crazy for molasses lately! for the vegetables i just steamed some green beans, threw in some chopped oranges and walnuts, and topped with liquid smoke. because liquid smoke makes everything amazing!

orange molasses tempeh
1 package of tempeh
1 tbl orange juice concentrate
1 tbl tamari or soy sauce
1 tbl blackstrap molasses 

-preheat oven to 350 degrees
-cut tempeh in half, then cut each half diagonally into triangles. 
-put tempeh in boiling water for about 3 minutes
-mix orange juice, tamari and molasses to create sauce
-in a baking dish, pour sauce over tempeh
-bake for 30 minutes

I think this sounds good. I am thinking about doing something similar, but with pomegranate juice and pomegranate molasses instead of orange juice and blackstrap molasses. Is that gross?

you might not need both juice and molasses...but pomegranate molasses marinated tempeh would be amazing!
