Crispy Tempeh

RECIPE BY EDEN FROM @veganbyeden

Tempeh is high in protein and is great to incorporate into your plant-based diet. Have a try at this recipe and use it as a topping to your salad or grains!

  • Tempeh, 1 block (about 300 g)
  • Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
  • Tomato Sauce, 1/4 cup
  • Tamari, 2 tbsp
  • Brown Rice Vinegar, 1 tbsp
  • Lime, 1
  • Maple Syrup, 1 tbsp
  • Black Pepper, to taste
  1. Cut the tempeh block into cubes. In a small bowl add the tomato sauce, tamari, rice vinegar, maple syrup and pepper. Add half the lime juice and stir. Add small amounts of water (1 tbsp at a time) and keep stirring until you are happy with the taste and consistency. Add more water for a thinner sauce and less water for a thicker sauce. Set aside.
  2.  In a pan heat the olive oil and add the tempeh cubes. Cook them on all sides until they start to brown (about 10 mins).
  3. Add the sauce and stir so the tempeh cubes are evenly coated. Keep cooking for 5-10 mins until tempeh bites are crispy.
  4. Serve in a coconut bowl with a side of rice or fresh cucumber slices and extra lime juice.
