Spiced tempeh recipe

Lifestyle — Posted 02/08/16

A delicious vegetarian protein option, perfect for barbecues and stir fries.

This is the perfect side dish or an addition to steamed or grilled veggies or salad. It also makes a great vegetarian option for barbecues, or mixed into curries and stir fries.

Tempeh has a nutty, meaty, mushroom-like flavour, and is a good plant-based source of protein. 


1 block of tempeh, cubed 

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce 

1 pinch of cayenne pepper 

1 bunch of fresh coriander (chopped)


1. Using a shallow dish, combine olive oil, soy sauce, pepper and half of the chopped fresh coriander. 

2. Add the tempeh and allow it to soak in the mixture for 15-60 minutes (depending on how much time you have!) 

3. Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan on medium heat and add the marinated tempeh.

4. Continue to stir on heat until all edges are golden and crisp.  

5. Transfer to a dish and top with the remaining fresh coriander. 

6. Serve warm or chilled.
