Peanut Marinated Tempeh

Look, tempeh is not the most good looking thing by itself and the first time I tried i was not a fan, but the trick is the same with the tofu, you just gotta learn how to marinate it and cook it! This recipe is one of those goodies! its a no brainer, super simple and delicious.


Just give it a try to the poor thing! I promise you will not regret!







Ingredients:

  • 300gr tempeh

Marinade

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1 tsp chili flakes


Instructions:

  1. Place all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine, taste and adjust flavours if needed

  2. Cut tempeh in small bites, I like to cut in 3 rows lengthwise and then small triangles (like in picture above)

  3. Place tempeh pieces in the bowl and mix to make sure is well covered in the marinade

  4. Transfer to a container, cover and slide in the fridge, let it marinate for at least 4 hours, but I highly recommend to leave it overnight

  5. Transfer tempeh to a baking sheet and place on your preheated oven (200c) for around 15-20min or till brown

  6. Serve with rice and my easy peanut sauce, enjoy!
