tempeh questions..

Hey, everyone.. I had tempeh tonight for the very first time. It came out alright, but I just had a few questions about it..

Before I threw it on the stove, I cut it up into bitesize pieces, and it became very crumbly, and it fell apart very easily. Is there any way to prevent that, or is that just how it's supposed to be? The brand I have is SoyBoy low-fat, so I don't know if that makes any difference.

Also, the marinade I used was very simple. I just mixed some teryaki sauce with ground ginger and added a little bit of water. It tasted great, but I'm trying to think of other easy and relatively healthy marinades. I don't have much in my refrigerator, so I'm probably limited to what I can do. Let's see, I have.. teryaki sauce, Braggs, BBQ sauce, red wine vinegar, Italian seasonings, ginger, cinnamon, and garlic powder. Any suggestions? (keep in mind i'm a college student with a very small kitchen space, ha.) Also, I'd prefer to use as little oil as possible.

And, hey.. while we're at it, if you have a personal favorite tempeh recipe you'd like to share, that's cool too. ;)

Thanks a lot, guys!
