We love tempeh! It's one of our fav meat alternatives. This has now become Jake's signature dish, as he is great at mixing and matching flavours.
This delish marinated tempeh is inspired by the Vegan Zombie's TLT (tempeh, lettuce, tomato) recipe.
1 block of tempeh, sliced thinly
3 cups hot water
1 vege stock cube
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon oil
4 tablespoons smoked barbecue sauce (if you have liquid smoke use about 1 teaspoon of this instead)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons kecap manis or brown sugar
4 cloves garlic
1 diced onion
4 slices of ginger
Salt, pepper and chilli to taste
1. Mix all broth ingredients in a saucepan, and bring to the boil.
2. Add tempeh, and simmer on medium heat till broth reduces. This will take around 20-30 minutes.
You can eat it now at this stage for a softer texture or fry for a crispier texture, see below.
3. Remove from pan and cool. In a little oil, pan fry or grill in the oven till crispy.
Stir fries, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, salads, cooked breakfasts, barbecue and so much more!
