Sweet and Sour Tempeh with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Tempeh is made of soybeans and tasteless by itself. ย My first experience with tempeh at a restaurant was terrible. ย  So I went home and experimented with a few recipes I found online and this sweet and sour spicy sauce really can bring everyone’s appetite. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack of tempeh, cut into 1 inch cube
  • 1/2 lb of okra, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 shallots, minced

Tempeh sauce ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon of mirin
  • 3 tablespoon of rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of ginger, minced

Peanut sauce ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup of unsalted peanut butter
  • 2.5 tablespoon of maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon of rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlics
  • 1/3 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup of water

Directions:

  1. Prepare the tempeh sauce by mixing everything together.
  2. In a saucepan, combine tempeh with tempeh sauce. ย Bring it to boil and reduce the heat to low. ย Cover the pan and cook for 25 minutes. ย Uncover and cook until the pan is dry.
  3. In a separate skillet, pan fry shallots, garlics and gingers, stir in peppers, onions and okra. ย Add a pinch of salt.
  4. In a blender, combine all peanut sauce ingredients. ย You may add more water until it becomes a creamy mixture.
  5. Place vegetables on a plate, cover with tempeh. ย Pour the peanut sauce over.
