Orange Glazed Tempeh Kabobs

This dish packs a solid punch of orange goodness!  It takes a little more time than the usual ones, as there is some marinading to be done.  But it has a nice, sweet, payoff.

I put them on kabobs for easy dipping and served with broccoli, but you could add more to the skewers or add them to a bed of rice and veggies.
